Warehouse operations are critical to businesses and consumers, and warehouse employers are committed to safe and healthy workplaces for their employees.
SHB 1762 imposes overlapping warehouse requirements to ensure safe working conditions and provide employee meal and rest breaks. These requirements are already actively enforced by the Department of Labor and Industries. SHB 1762 does not add new protections for employees’ safety, meal, and rest breaks, and only adds new opportunities for third-party lawsuits against warehouse employers. Please reach out to your State Senator and urge opposition to SHB 1762. Take action.
