Final rules for the Seattle Secure Scheduling Ordinance have been published. Now is the time for covered employers — large retailers and restaurants with 500 employees — to undertake a major overhaul to their scheduling practices before the law’s effective date of July 1, 2017.

Please join Lane Powell and Washington Retail Association for Part 2 of our two-part webinar series surrounding Seattle’s Secure Scheduling Ordinance on Tuesday, June 6, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. PST to find out how you can prepare and ensure compliance with the new rules.

  • Are you a covered employer?
  • What employees are covered?
