Presenter: Andrew Bryan, Assistant Small Business Liaison, Washington State Department of Labor & Industries Description:Being an employer in Washington comes with many obligations and responsibilities. Join Andrew as he helps guide you through what you need to know about your requirements, how to navigate them, and the many resources that are available to help you along the way.

Andrew has been assisting small business owners navigate state government regulations and requirements at L&I for over six years by providing direct customer assistance, training, customized presentations, and publishing the quarterly Small Business Newsletter. He has an MA in Anthropology and experience as a small business owner prior to joining state government. The Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) is a diverse state agency dedicated to the safety, health, and security of Washington's 3.3 million workers. They help employers meet safety and health standards, and inspect workplaces when alerted to hazards. As administrators of the state's workers' compensation system, they are similar to a large insurance company, providing medical and limited wage-replacement coverage to workers who suffer job-related injuries and illness. Their rules and enforcement programs also help ensure workers are paid what they are owed, that children's and teens' work hours are limited, and that consumers are protected from unsound building practices.
