Seattle Sick Leave

As of September 1, 2012, if you have employees working in Seattle, even occasionally, they are entitled to accrue and use paid sick and safe leave under Seattle's new ordinance. Even employers who currently provide sick leave or PTO are significantly impacted by this ordinance.

This presentation will help you:

  • Understand the detailed requirements of the new ordinance and final regulations

  • Analyze how this mandated benefit impacts existing sick leave or PTO accruals, expands the type of absences for which employees may use their accruals, and impacts call-in and absence control policies

  • Examine your options for complying with this ordinance for part-time, seasonal, per diem or similar employees who may have previously accrued no sick leave or PTO
