Help Available for Seattle’s Paid Sick/Safe Time Ordinance

The Seattle Office for Civil Rights (SOCR) has posted a new and expanded Frequently Asked Questions document to its Paid Sick and Safe Time web site. The FAQ provides answers to questions that employers and employees have been asking since the ordinance was implemented on September 1, 2012.

SOCR also offers direct technical assistance to employers who write or phone with questions about how to implement the Ordinance. Have a question about PSST? Call 206-684-4500 or e-mail

Visit the Paid Sick and Safe Time web site for links to:

  • a brochure
  • aposter for employers to put up in a lunchroom or on a bulletin board;
  • the full version of the Ordinance;
  • the Administrative Rules, which clarify a number of details about the Ordinance;
