Seattle Paid Sick and Safe Time

Foster Pepper PLLC | 30th Floor Conference Center

ABOUT THE EVENT

The Seattle Paid Sick and Safe Time ordinance takes effect on September 1, 2012. Employers must provide Seattle workers with paid "sick and safe" time off - i.e., accrued, job-protected leave. Is your organization prepared?

Join Foster Pepper attorneys and special guests for a complimentary seminar, or if outside the Seattle area, via webinar, covering the new ordinance. This presentation will provide practical guidance to Washington employers on compliance with the new leave requirements.

In addition to experienced Foster Pepper attorneys, our presenters will include a special guest speaker from the City of Seattle to answer your questions.
