WAC 192-600-010

When must an employee provide notice for unforeseeable leave?

(1) When the need for leave is not foreseeable, an employee must provide written notice to the employer as soon as is practicable under the facts and circumstances of the particular situation.
(2) If the employee is unable to provide notice personally, written notice may be given by another responsible party, such as the employee's spouse, neighbor, or coworker.
Example 1: An employee's spouse is in a car accident and is taken to the emergency room. The employee would not be required to leave the spouse in the emergency room in order to report the absence while the spouse is receiving emergency treatment. The employee would be expected to provide written notice, such as an email, to the employer as soon as is practicable.
Example 2: An employee is in a car accident and is taken to the emergency room for emergency surgery. The employee's parent may provide written notice on behalf of the employee as soon as is practicable.
