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 or November 15th. We will explain the highlights of the new law and dive into the complexities of ensuring compliance. Topics will include:

  • Understanding the broad definitions of “family member” and other terms under Washington’s new paid leave law;
  • The effect of Initiative 1433 on local paid leave laws with varying requirements and standards;
  • For employers operating in multiple locations in Washington, understanding and managing sick and safe leave provisions when operating in various Washington cities with their own paid leave provisions;
  • Highlighting key concepts of accrual, usage, and covered leave under the new law
  • Analyzing the new variance procedures;
  • Preparing for complex enforcement and remedies regulations and much more.

Be prepared to get details on how to bring your current policies into compliance.
