Other rulemaking

PRIVACY AND OTHER TOPICS RELATED TO IMPLEMENTATION

The passage of SB 1399 requires the department to engage in rulemaking regarding the implementation of new privacy provisions contained within the bill. In addition, other topics related to the implementation of Paid Family and Medical Leave are included. References to specific RCW's have also been changed as a result of the recodification of Title 50A RCW. Due to the content of these rules and their impact on other programs, the department has decided to proceed with a rulemaking process that is independent from the typical "phase" process that has been employed to this point.
