Legislative Update from Brian A. Walker, Ogden Murphy Wallace PLLC 

In what may become statewide or nationwide issue, the Seattle City Council and Mayor Ed Murry have made Seattle the second major city in the United States to regulate how large retailers and food-service employers schedule their workers.  

Seattle’s new law takes effect in July, 2017, and applies to large retailers and quick-serve food and drink establishments with 500 or more workers, and to full-service restaurants with both 500 or more employees and 40 or more locations.  According to news reports, a primary motivation for the law was the working conditions at Starbucks..   [More]
