New best-practices guide for
mental health in construction

Written as a Master’s Degree thesis by AGCW safety director Mandi Kime (CHST, B.S. & B.A., Central Washington University), this new Mental-Health Best-Practice Guide is backed by member input to a construction-focused survey. Detailing eight practices that construction employers should consider, this is the first time, to our knowledge, that new data has been developed for mental health in construction that is completely accessible publicly.

Employers start collecting long-term care premiums in January
The following information is provided by the Employment Security Department (ESD) to explain employer responsibilities under the Washington Cares (long-term care) Act as passed by the Legislature.
Collecting premiums.  Employers won’t pay any share of premiums for their employees. Beginning Jan. 1, 2022, however, you’ll be required to report your employees’ wages and hours and collect Washington Cares premiums from your employees’ wages—the same way you do now for Paid Leave.
No payroll? No report  You don’t have to file a report for quarters where your employees had no hours or wages.
Tracking employee exemptions Some employees may choose to apply for an exemption from Washington Cares coverage. It’s their responsibility to apply and—if approved—to notify and give you a copy of their approval letter from the Employment Security Department (ESD). Once approved, exemptions are permanent and employees can never opt back in.
