Seattle Office for Civil Rights (SOCR) enforces federal and civil rights laws; leads the Race and Social Justice Initiative, the City of Seattle’s long-term commitment to end racism and achieve racial equity in Seattle; and coordinates the Gender Justice Project, whose goal is to close the wage gap for Seattle workers.
The City of Seattle is a national leader on wage, labor and workforce practices that enhance equity. To address wage gaps and create a fair and healthy economy for workers, businesses and residents, the City of Seattle created an Office of Labor Standards (OLS) in late 2014. OLS is mandated to implement City ordinances on minimum wage, paid sick and safe time, use of criminal history in employment decisions, wage theft and other laws that the City may enact in the future. OLS is housed within SOCR.
