Initiative 1433, which was approved by Washington voters in Fall 2016, requires employers to provide paid sick leave to most employees beginning Jan. 1, 2018.

Eligible employees will earn one hour of paid sick leave for every 40 hours worked. This training covers the policies and processes WSU will implement to comply with the new state law.

Those eligible to accrue paid sick leave under this new policy are nonstudent hourly employees, student employees, student employees using work-study funds, and nonstudent employees.

Trainings are offered at the following times and locations:

  • 10:30 to noon Feb. 6 in the Lighty Student Services building, Room 405
  • 1:30 – 3 p.m. Feb. 19 in the Lighty Student Services building, Room 405
  • 1:30 – 3 p.m. Feb. 21 in the Lighty Student Services building, Room 403
