Executive Director’s Report: 12/10/2018
Paid Family Leave: Are you ready for the new paid family leave law that goes in to effect on January 1? Beginning in 2019, employers are required to begin withholding the required premiums for paid family leave that employees will be able to start using in 2020. We are still getting a lot of questions about the new law in regards to small businesses, union contracts, business size and more. The state has developed the following website to help answer many of these questions: www.paidleave.wa.gov/employers. I also encourage you to download the Employer Toolkit (the toolkit includes a checklist to get ready for January).
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas: Thank you to everyone that attended one of our parties down in Clarkston and Tri Cities last week – some of our largest events ever! We hope to see all of you on Thursday here at the AGC office for our last bash of the year!
Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns.
