Please follow our discussion series as we post regular blogs on all the latest news with Seattle’s labor standards ordinances. We will also highlight various tools and resources that Business Impact NW can provide to educate and guide small business owners on understanding and complying with Seattle’s labor standards laws.
Business Impact NW and the Ethnic Chambers of Commerce Coalition (ECCC) are now providing free outreach, education, and technical assistance to business owners on the Seattle Labor Standards ordinances through a partnership with the City of Seattle Office of Labor Standards (OLS) under the Business Outreach and Education Fund (BOEF).
In our efforts to support small businesses under this partnership, we are continuously working on tools and resources to make compliance easier. Recently, we launched a user-friendly Seattle Labor Laws Guide website tool. Combining various resources into a comprehensive step-by-step guide, the tool guides business owners through the Seattle Labor Standards ordinances. It provides additional documents, download links and resources such as information on the minimum wage ordinance, paid leave, policies and procedures for conducting, or using criminal background checks, and more.
Here’s a preview of the interactive Seattle Labor Laws Guide website tool, which can be accessed at www.ecccseattlelaborlaws.org:
