The Washington State Update that Was NOT Mandatory

Did Your Poster Vendor Get it Right?

The GovDocs Research Department confirmed with the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries that a June 2013 update to the Your Rights as a Worker in Washington State posting was not a mandatory change.

Employers displaying the posting dated December 2012 remain in compliance with the posting requirement, according to the Department.

A Department representative explained that the passage of the same-sex marriage initiative (R-74) in Washington will increase the employees covered by the state’s Family Leave Act (FLA). The posting was updated with language specific to the Act, but the changes were not mandatory.

Our Research Department proactively follows up with state and federal agencies to confirm whether posting changes are mandatory.
