The Seattle Office for Civil Rights has proposed Administrative Rules for the City Paid Sick and Safe Leave Ordinance. Members of the public have until Monday, April 30, 2012 to comment on the proposed Rules.
The ordinance applies to full-time, part-time, and temporary employees who perform more than 240 hours of work in Seattle within a calendar year. Employees who occasionally work in Seattle are covered if they perform more than 240 hours of work in Seattle within a calendar year. The ordinance does not apply to work study employees and employees of other government employers.
Comments and questions from the public will be used to shape the final language of the Rules, which define terms used in the ordinance, as well as clarify how SOCR will conduct enforcement. You can send comments via e-mail to email@example.com or in writing to:
Seattle Office for Civil Rights

Seattle, WA 98104-1627
