Posting Requirements

Posting Requirements

Unlike other parts of the ordinance, the posting requirements for the Seattle ordinance are pretty straight forward. There is a poster that the city has made available to meet their requirements that you can find here. (English, Spanish, Amharic)

You are required to give notice to your employees English, Spanish and any other language commonly spoken by employees at the particular workplace. If the above three languages do not cover the main languages spoken at your establishment please contact us.

The notice must include that: (a) Employees are entitled to minimum wage and/or minimum compensation; (b) Retaliation is illegal; and (3) Employees have the right to file a complaint with the Office of Labor Standards if their employer does not pay them minimum wage and/or minimum compensation or if they employees are retaliated against for exercising their rights under the ordinance.

You must put up the notice in visible place at any workplace or job site where employees impacted by the minimum wage work. Break rooms and other places where your employees routinely visit are acceptable.

Additionally, if you use the above posters they will cover the Wage Theft Ordinance notice requirements.

If you have any questions about the Seattle Minimum Wage ordinance you can contact us and/or make use of the Minimum Wage Guide we have provided for you.
