Number of workers covered under Seattle's Secure Scheduling Ordinance
|Industry||Total industry employment||Share in firms with 500+ employees||Nonsupervisory share of industry employment||Total covered workers|
Notes: Seattle’s Secure Scheduling Ordinance went into effect on July 1, 2017.
Seattle’s Secure Scheduling Ordinance went into effect on July 1, 2017. The total number of covered workers in each industry is calculated by first multiplying the industry’s total employment in Seattle by the share of employees in that industry that are in firms with 500+ employees (the accommodation and food service share is used for fast-food restaurants), and then multiplying that result by the share of employees in that industry that are nonsupervisory employees. In all cases, “share” refers to the share in the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA metropolitan statistical area (MSA). Calculations are made using unrounded numbers. Since the law applies to establishments with 500+ employees worldwide and we are using employers with 500+ employees in the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA MSA, we are likely underestimating the number of workers impacted.
