Washington State Labor Education & Research Center
COVID Workplace Protections Changing
The Labor Center has updated its Rights At Work WA website to reflect the latest June 30, 2021 changes to Washington State and national OSHA COVID worker protection rules. Although Gov. Jay Inslee relaxed mask requirements and capacity limits for many businesses, there are still emergency standards protecting workers rights to wear masks, file COVID safety complaints, take needed sick leave, unemployment and workers comp for COVID-related illness. The Rights At Work WA website will continue to be updated as rules change later this year.
