Paid Leave Laws in Washington: What You Need to Know

Paid Leave Laws in Washington: What You Need to Know

Learn everything you need to know about paid leave laws in Washington and how they will affect your organization. Sometimes it seems like paid sick leave obligations are changing by the month, the week or even the day. Just when you come up with a proposal and an agreed-upon solution that works for one location, another law in a nearby city gets passed. Surely there must be a compliance solution that works across the board? This topic will devote part of the session to: (1) explaining the paid sick leave requirements under Washington state local paid sick leave laws including the variances among the ordinances; (2) discussing various compliance options, including pros and cons of different paid time-off benefits and universal vs. locality-by-locality compliance solutions; and (3) identifying the tools available to employers to address attendance control and potential misuse. You will be given the opportunity to ask questions and discuss practical applications of the law to corporate realities.
