The City of Seattle is a national leader on wage, labor and workforce practices that enhance equity. To address wage gaps and create a fair and healthy economy for workers, businesses and residents, the City of Seattle created an Office of Labor Standards (OLS) in late 2014. OLS implements City ordinances on minimum wage, paid sick and safe time, use of criminal history in employment decisions, wage theft and other laws that the City may enact in the future. OLS is housed within the Seattle Office for Civil Rights (SOCR). SOCR enforces federal and civil rights laws; leads the Race and Social Justice Initiative, the City of Seattle's long-term commitment to end racism and achieve racial equity in Seattle; and coordinates the Gender Justice Project, the goal of which is to close the wage gap for Seattle workers.
The Labor Standards Business Liaison is a temporary full-time position that will report to the OLS Division Director. This position will serve as the complement to the Community Liaison, with the responsibility to provide outreach, education, and representation of the needs of the business community to successfully implement Seattle's labor standards.
