Outreach and Education

The Office of Labor Standards (OLS) is partnering with community-based and business organizations to conduct and facilitate outreach, education, and technical assistance to workers and small businesses on Seattle's labor standards.

Community Outreach and Education Fund

The Community Outreach and Education Fund (COEF) will foster collaboration between OLS and the community to develop awareness and understanding of worker rights, and facilitate resolution of labor standards violations. Total contract funds equal $3.3 million for 2017 and 2018, which has been awarded for a two-year contract cycle with the selected organizations.
