Washington State Mandatory Sick Leave & Employment Practices Review
The first impact occurred on January 1, 2017 when the minimum wage increased to $11 hour. The next, and largest, impact of I-1433 is paid sick leave that must be provided to all employees at a minimum rate of 1 hour of sick leave for every 40 hours worked. The statute and the administrative regulations require all employers, regardless of size, to provide specific notifications to their employees. The failure to comply with I-1433 could expose your business to penalties, through the Department of Labor and Industries, that range from $1,000 per violation for first time violators to up to $20,000 per violation. In addition, employees can bring a civil lawsuit to enforce their right to paid sick leave. Don't leave your business exposed. Learn how to comply and avoid mistakes that could cost your business.
