Seattle Office for Civil Rights Rules
Chapter 70

 

RETALIATION

SHRR 70-460           Individual and third party protection

The Ordinance's protections for exercise of rights and prohibition against retaliation shall extend to any person in the exercise or attempt to exercise any right protected under the Ordinance, including any person who has aided or encouraged another person in the exercise or attempt to exercise any right under the Ordinance.

SHRR 70-470           Absence control policies

The Ordinance's protections for exercise of rights and prohibition against retaliation shall apply in situations where an absence control policy, in writing or practice, counts paid sick/safe time covered under the Ordinance as an absence that may lead to or result in any adverse action taken against the employee.

SHRR 70-480           Response to clear instance or pattern of abuse

The Ordinance's protections for exercise of rights and prohibition against retaliation do not prevent an employer from taking reasonable action (e.g. discipline) when an employee's use of paid sick/safe time is not in good faith, such as a clear instance or pattern of abuse.
