The Hotel Employee Protection Toolkit
In the fall of 2019, the Seattle City Council passed a package of four ordinances
related to hotels. The Hotel Employee
Protection Ordinances are four Seattle Municipal Codes (SMC) relating to:SMC14.26 Protecting Employees From Violent or Harassing Conduct
Additionally, final rules from the Office of Labor Standards can be found below to add
specificity and clarification.
Compliance with Seattle laws and municipal codes is the responsibility of each individual business owner and operator. The following toolkit and material is intended only to provide general information and should not be viewed as legal advice.
We’ve developed the toolkit with FAQs, checklists, definitions and more to help you comply.
