The passage of Initiative Measure No. 1433 marks the beginning of a new era for Washington employers. For the first time, beginning January 1, 2018, all Washington employers will be required to provide employees paid sick and safe leave. In certain respects, Initiative 1433’s paid leave provisions are more generous than the mandates of some municipal laws, so even employers in cities with current leave laws must consider whether their policies will comply with the new state law.
In order to help employers navigate this new law, join Jackson Lewis for this complimentary one-hour webinar on November 9th. We will explain the highlights of the new law and dive into the complexities of ensuring compliance.
