Washington State Paid Sick Leave(effective January 1, 2018)
Humanix non-exempt employees working at Washington state clients will begin accruing paid sick leave on the first day of employment and are eligible to use paid leave after 90 calendar days of employment.
You will earn one hour of paid sick leave for every 40 hours worked. You will be able to use paid leave for any of the following reasons:
- To care for yourself or your child, spouse, registered domestic partner, parent, spouse’s parent, grandparent, grandchild or sibling with an illness, injury or health condition and for medical/dental/optical appointments.
-When you or a family member is the victim of sexual assault, domestic violence, or stalking.
-In the event our business or your child’s school or place of care is closed by a public official for any health-related reason.
Employees do not accrue paid sick leave for time not worked (e.g., paid holiday hours).
You may carry over 40 hours of unused accrued leave into the next year of employment.
Paid sick leave hours accrued, used and available hours will be recorded on your paystub.
Please provide reasonable notice of an anticipated absence.
You may be required to provide verification that leave is for a covered purpose. Pay for leave time may be delayed to the pay period in which verification is provided.
You will be paid your current assignment hourly rate for paid leave. If paid leave is taken during hours involving overtime, you will be paid sick leave at your hourly rate, not at overtime rate. Paid leave may be used in increments of 15 minutes.
Upon employment separation with Humanix, unused paid leave will not be paid out. If you leave employment with Humanix and are rehired within 12 months, your unused accrued paid sick leave hours will be reinstated. Your previous employment period is counted for purpose of determining your eligibility to use at 90 days.
You will not be retaliated against for using paid sick leave for the described covered purposes.
