Service Alert

If there's a state government shutdown due to lack of a 2017 – 2019 Washington budget, many services provided by the Department of Labor & Industries would not be available starting July 1. L&I has a full list of service interruptions should there be a full or partial shutdown.

Health Benefits

Question: Does a business have to give workers health or disability insurance plans?

No. Health Insurance and disability plans are voluntary benefits that a business may or may not choose to provide. This issue is not regulated by L&I. However, Insurance Commission rules regarding termination of benefits may apply.
