Washington: Hearing to clarify classification reporting requirements
The Washington Department of Labor and Industries will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2010, at 9 a.m. in Room S117.566 at the Tumwater L&I Building, 7273 Linderson Way SW, Tumwater to consider amendments to Chapter 296-17 WAC.
The purpose of the changes is to consider clarifying employers' reporting requirements when an employee performs work for more than one classification. Currently, the reporting requirements for workers with duties supporting more than one basic classification are addressed in three separate sections of Chapter 296-17 WAC. These are 296-17-31002 (General rule definitions); 296-17-31017 (Multiple classifications); and 296-17-31020 (Employee supporting multiple business operations). The new rule clarifies the regulations by addressing all situations where a worker is supporting multiple basic classifications. For more information, visit www.lni.wa.gov.
