Washington: Sick Leave Notice Due to Existing Employees by March 1

Model Notice Now Available

Washington has released an employee paid sick leave notification form ("notice") that is compliant with the state paid sick leave rules.

Notice Requirements
Employers must provide employees with a notice regarding their rights under the sick leave law. The notice may be provided in written or electronic form, and its contents must be made readily available to all employees.

For existing employees (already working before January 1, 2018), the notice must be provided no later than March 1, 2018. For new employees (hired on or after January 1, 2018), the notice must be provided no later than the commencement of employment.

Background
An employer generally must provide each of its employees paid sick leave at the greater of the increased minimum wage or the employee's normal wage. An employee accrues at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 40 hours worked and may use paid sick leave for certain purposes.
