Labor & Employment

Local jurisdictions continue to pass ordinances that modify state labor laws creating a patchwork of regulations for employers who do business in Washington. Many are aware of local jurisdictions that have introduced regulations that restrict the ability of employers to work with their employees regarding a flexible work schedule. 

I was asked: Do you support legislation that would restrict an employer from working with an employee to provide flexibility in their work schedule? Should local governments be allowed to set different labor regulations for employers than those set at the state level?

My Response

I believe in the free market in the public and private sector. A local jurisdiction can do their own thing with labor laws, but I do not recommend it. A local jurisdiction will quickly find out about how the tax revenue stream works when they chase employers away to neighboring jurisdictions with unreasonable labor laws. Large employers with multiple locations will find those locations that work for them over time.
