Is your employee Washington-based, for minimum-wage and sick-leave purposes?


One of the lingering questions regarding the state’s new minimum-wage and paid sick-leave law, which went into effect Jan. 1 2018, is how “Washington-based employees” will be defined. 

In an effort to help employers determine whether or not an employee is Washington-based, the Department of Labor and Industries has developed a draft administrative policy which addresses Washington-based employees. The department is requesting feedback on the draft language.

The draft policy can be found here. Instructions regarding how to submit comments to L&I can be found there as well.

Whether or not you submit comments to L&I directly, please share your thoughts with AGC Chief Lobbyist Jerry VanderWood, 360.352.5000.

The deadline for submission of feedback is COB Friday, November 9, 2018.
