2018 Labor Standards Update
Changes to Minimum Wage & Paid Sick and Safe Time take effect on January 1, 2018
The increase to minimum wage reflects inflation adjustments and annual increases required by the Minimum Wage ordinance. The expanded Paid Sick and Safe Time requirements reflect changes required by voter-passed, Washington Initiative 1433 (I-1433). Under I-1433, all hourly employees working in Seattle and throughout Washington automatically have a right to paid sick leave.
Under legislation proposed by OLS, the I-1433 requirements will also apply equally to hourly and overtime exempt employees (with a few limited exceptions).
Upcoming Webinar training offered by OLS:
Thursday, December 7, 2017, 9:30 am to 10:30 am PST
Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm PST
Thursday, December 14, 2017, 10:00 am to 11:00 am PST
