Washington: Spokane sick leave ordinance goes into effect
January 1, 2017
On January 26, 2016, the Spokane City Council approved an ordinance requiring employers to provide employees with sick leave. The City Council overrode a veto by the mayor to pass the new ordinance. The ordinance will apply to physically perform 240 hours of work within the city, although it is unclear if that will be a yearly or one-time requirement. Under the new ordinance, eligible employees will earn at least 1 hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked and will be entitled to accrue a minimum of 24 hours of unused sick leave.
