Paid Sick Leave Frequently Asked Questions - Draft Administrative Policy

Participation for Paid Sick Leave Frequently Asked Question Draft Administrative Policy has concluded.

"Q and A" in red surrounded by questions

On November 8, 2016, Washington voters passed Initiative 1433. The initiative, amongst other things, created new requirements in the Washington Minimum Wage Act for employers to provide employees with paid sick leave, and provided the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) the authority to enforce and investigate retaliation claims.

To help employers implement these requirements, and to help workers understand their rights, L&I wants your feedback on the draft administrative policy addressing paid sick leave frequently asked questions (FAQs).

We are asking the public to review the draft administrative policy by Friday, October 18, 2019.

A meeting to discuss the content of the draft FAQs will be held on Thursday, October 3, 2019, at the L&I headquarters building from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the auditorium.
