Washington: Tacoma Paid Leave

This policy complies with the paid sick leave ordinance in Tacoma, which went into effect on February 1, 2016 and provides paid leave to employees who regularly work in Tacoma and employees who occasionally work in Tacoma and perform 80 hours or more of work there in a calendar year.

Including the policy in the employee handbook is optional. There is a required notice that must be posted in a conspicuous and accessible place in each establishment where employees are employed or otherwise distributed to employees, but as with all paid sick leave policies, we strongly recommend including the policy the handbook. Distribution may be accomplished electronically.
