WA Cares Fund Delay
On January 27, a bill was signed to delay parts of the WA Cares Fund implementation for 18 months. Please note that January payroll was finalized prior to the change in law. Therefore, WA Cares Fund premiums were withheld from 01/31/2022 checks for all employees who did not provide payroll with an exemption letter from Washington State Employment Security Department. At this time, we anticipate refunding WA Cares Fund premium deductions on February 28, 2022 checks.
Premium collection is now expected to begin July 2023. Payroll will continue to watch for further information from the Employment Security Department.
