Washington paid sick leave webinar

November 8
10 – 11:30 am

Registration for the live webinar is now closed. A recording of the webinar will be available for purchase on November 9 at 10 am.

About this webinar

Is your organization’s paid sick leave program compliant with Washington’s new paid sick leave statute, which will take effect January 1, 2018? Many public employers already offer paid sick leave accruals that are more generous than what the new law will require, but employers also need to ensure that their administration of this leave benefit complies in all respects with the new law.

  • Learn key requirements of the new paid sick leave law, including employee eligibility, reasons for which leave must be permitted and limits on sick leave documentation.
  • Review a checklist for compliance.
  • Understand practical considerations and options for modifying existing sick leave policies to conform to the new legal requirements.

This webinar is for HR, fiscal and management staff.
