On February 3, 2021, Seattle became the first city in the state to mandate hazard pay for grocery workers. This week, Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda introduced legislation to repeal Seattle’s hazard pay order. When the Council passed the mandate, the Council raised the possibility of keeping the mandate in effect for only a few months.

The repeal legislation has been referred to Councilmember Mosqueda’s Finance and Housing Committee. The mandate’s repeal would take effect 30 days after the Council passes the legislation and the mayor signs it.
