Seattle’s PSST ordinance requires employers operating in Seattle to provide all employees with paid leave to care for themselves or a family member with a physical or mental health condition, medical appointment, or a critical safety issue.

Seattle recently amended the PSST ordinance to reflect the more employee-protective provisions of voter-passed, Washington Initiative 1433, which established statewide paid sick leave for hourly employees working in Washington state. Effective July 1, 2018, PSST rule revisions modify existing rules, originally issued in 2012, to reflect these ordinance amendments.
