The City of Seattle is a leader on wage, labor and workforce practices that enhance equity, address wage gaps, and create a fair and healthy economy for workers, businesses and residents. The mission of the Office of Labor Standards (OLS) is to advance labor standards through thoughtful community and business engagement, strategic enforcement and innovative policy development, with a commitment to race and social justice.

The Office of Labor Standards has an opportunity for one strategic, adaptable Policy Analyst to join our highly skilled, innovative policy team in a fast-paced, dynamic work environment.

The Policy Analyst plays an important role in promoting workplace equity, protecting the rights of low-wage workers, helping employers comply with labor standards, and advancing race and social justice. This position will work in an independent, self-directed manner with collaboration across the OLS team. Policy Analysts perform extensive policy and legal research, analysis, and writing; conduct stakeholder engagement; create reports, trainings, and outreach materials; provide compliance assistance; apply race and social justice principles to all levels of work.
