AWC submits response letter in state agency’s paid sick leave rulemaking process

The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) has been creating rules to enforce the paid sick leave requirements of Initiative 1433. AWC responded to the latest draft rules by submitting a letter on various aspects of the draft rules; including city-specific concerns on collective bargaining agreements and on-call hours.

L&I has also created a comprehensive webpage about implementing Initiative 1433, which includes proposed rules, stakeholder responses, and other ways to stay involved with the law’s implementation. It is important to note that even if your city currently provides sick leave that meets or exceeds the new law, some of its provisions will still require you to take action, update policies, and report to LNI.
