    Register for this webinar and you will receive the recording and handouts to the September Nuts and Bolts presentation to get up to speed. 

    Nicholas Burrow, Washington State Department of Labor & Industries

    Starting January 1, 2018, ALL employers in Washington state will be required to provide their employees with paid sick leave that will accrue at a minimum rate of one hour paid sick leave for every 40 hours worked. This is the second presentation and follow-up to the September Nuts and Bolt's presentation presented by Washington State Department of Labor & Industries.

    This webinar will focus on answering many of the questions submitted by members from the prior webinar that was mainly seasonal employer specific. It will also include an overview of the final rules and enforcement guidelines, leaving plenty time for you to ask additional questions.
