Secure Scheduling Ordinance

On Sept. 19, 2016, the Seattle City Council passed the Secure Scheduling Ordinance, 9-0. It took effect July 1, 2017.

The ordinance will require businesses to provide:

Two weeks advanced notice of schedules

Premium pay for changes after posting schedules, except when mass communication is used

Extra pay when there is less than 10 hours between shifts

Any available hours offered to existing employees before hiring more employees

The Seattle Restaurant Alliance and Washington Hospitality Association have been collaborating with the city on scheduling legislation since day one.

We worked hard on behalf of our members to create the best scheduling policy outcomes for employees and restaurateurs that won’t remove the flexibility employees enjoy.

We are pleased that in working with the city and labor advocates we made some positive moves through amendment additions that will benefit employees.
