Seattle Paid Sick And Safe Time: Practical Guidance Employers Need To Know
The Seattle Paid Sick and Safe Time ordinance takes effect on September 1, 2012. Employers must provide Seattle workers with paid "sick and safe" time off – i.e., accrued, job-protected leave. Is your organization prepared?
Joint Foster Pepper attorneys and special guests on August 8, 2012 for a complimentary seminar covering the new ordinance. This presentation will provide practical guidance to Washington employers on compliance with the new leave requirements, including:
- Legal requirements of the ordinance
- Coverage and scope of the ordinance, including application to occasional Seattle employees
- Hours tracking and leave requests
- Accrual and use of paid time off
- Modifications to existing paid leave programs
- Notice and posting requirements
- Practical guidance for employer implementation
In addition to experienced Foster Pepper attorneys, our presenters will include a special guest speaker from the City of Seattle to answer your questions.
Seating is limited, so please register early.
