Seattle Adds Serious Teeth to Sick and Safe Leave Law
Fisher & Phillips LLPLink to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Dec. 21, 2015

"Seattle is the now the first city in the country to create a private right of action under its mandatory paid leave laws ... The ordinance's amendments expand the definition of 'adverse action' by specifically calling out employment-related actions, including denying promotions, failing to re-hire after seasonal work interruptions, engaging in unfair immigration-related practices, and terminations.... A successful employee is entitled to reinstatement, or front pay in lieu of reinstatement, along with payment of unpaid wages plus interest. Prevailing individuals are also entitled to receive twice the amount of unpaid wages as liquidated damages, and receipt of a $5,000 to $20,000 penalty payment from the employer. The applicable statute of limitations is three years."
