The Office of Labor Standards is accepting applications for the position of Labor Standards Business Liaison.
As a leader on wage, labor and workforce practices that enhance equity, address wage gaps and create a fair and health economy for workers, businesses and residents, the City of Seattle created an Office of Labor Standards (OLS) in late 2014. OLS implements City ordinances on minimum wage, paid sick and safe time, use of criminal history in employment decisions, wage theft and other laws that the City may enact in the future. OLS is housed within the Seattle Office for Civil Rights (SOCR).
The Labor Standards Business Liaison will contribute as a member of the OLS outreach and communications team and serve as the lead on business outreach and engagement. This position will be responsible for becoming a subject matter expert on Seattle's labor standards, providing technical assistance to the business community on a daily basis, developing business outreach and engagement strategies as well as recommending policy solutions, and managing a business outreach and education contract program.
This is a full-time position that will report to the OLS Senior Policy Advisor under the direction of the OLS Director.
