2018 Labor Standards Updates

2018 Minimum Wage Increases – Effective January 1, 2018

The 2018 increases to Seattle’s minimum wage reflect inflation adjustments and annual increases required by the Minimum Wage ordinance. The measure for the rate of inflation is based on the Seattle-Tacoma-Bremerton Area Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers, termed CPI-W, for the 12-month period ending in August.

Amendments to Paid Sick and Safe Time & Secure Scheduling – Effective January 14, 2018

PSST amendments apply the more generous requirements of Washington state paid sick leave (established by voter-passed, Washington Initiative 1433) to both hourly and overtime-exempt employees working in Seattle. These PSST amendments are effective on January 14, 2018; OLS will conduct rulemaking process to reflect the amendments in the following months. Please note that Washington state paid sick leave requirements, applying to employees working in Seattle who are covered by the Washington Minimum Wage Act (RCW 49.46), are effective on January 1, 2018. SS amendments clarify employer coverage in response to changes in federal NAICS codes.
