Hill Climb 2023: What you need to know

It’s time to turn our attention to the upcoming legislative session. The Washington Hospitality Association is once again gearing up for our annual legislative event: Hill Climb 2023: hospitality week on the hill. We anticipate lawmakers will be tackling several issues important to our industry. For more information, go to https://hospitalityhillclimb.org/

15,000 WA businesses to receive restitution in labor poster scam

If so, you may be entitled to a refund plus interest. Two Florida-based companies were recently ordered to pay nearly $25 million in penalties and restitution in a labor poster scam targeting Washington businesses. As a reminder, association members don’t need to worry about getting labor posters – we send you a complimentary labor poster every year. Your 2023 labor poster will be in your mailbox soon.
