Today the Seattle City Council voted to make it mandatory for employers in Seattle to provide paid sick and safe leave employees. This is a good law that will be especially valuable to many minimum and low wage employees in the City of Seattle.
Tim Burgess, Council Member, City of Seattle, stated, “This afternoon I will vote in favor of an amended version of the Paid Sick and Safe Leave ordinance, a new law that will provide Seattle workers with access to paid leave when they or a family member become ill or a victim of domestic violence.”
