Overtime Pay Comment Sessions Coming to a City Near You

As you may know, Washington State’s Department of Labor and Industries is engaged in rulemaking that will likely expand overtime pay to workers in our state. As part of the rulemaking process the Department will be holding public feedback sessions throughout the state. If a session is coming to your area, mark you calendar. It is important for the Department to hear nonprofit voices and concerns during this phase of the rulemaking so that the final rules are workable for nonprofits. Because of this, we recommend that a representative from your organization participate and share your organization’s views on the pre-draft rules.

According to the Department of Labor and Industries, feedback sessionswill be held:

We will provide an update when the pre-draft rules are published, but we wanted to make sure your organization knows about the Department’s upcoming opportunities for in-person commenting.
