As part of continuing public outreach, WRA Chief Operating Officer Tammie Hetrick recently addressed the Northwest Marine Trade Association regarding current human resource laws and how employers can remain in compliance.
The marine trade association has joined as a partner in WRA’s Retrospective Rating program, through which they could qualify for partial refunds from their workers compensation insurance premiums.
During Hetricks’ presentation, several in the audience asked questions about statewide paid family and medical leave and a human resources manual that the Seattle law firm Lane Powell has prepared for WRA. Employers will begin making payments into the leave program in January, 2019 so that customers can begin making claims in January, 2020.
The addition of the NW Marine Trade Association and others to come will strengthen Retro’s overall financial health and improve worker safety at the member companies.
