King County has entered into Memorandums of Agreement (MOA) with many of its unions to provide employees who meet specific eligibility requirements and workers with non-standard full-time schedules with up to 80 additional hours of paid leave for COVID-19-related illnesses and reasons. This leave is prorated for part-time workers and is not available to interns and short-term temporary employees (STTs). This leave is also available to non-represented employees. 

For non-represented employees, this leave has been extended until either June 25, 2021, or June 30, 2021, depending on whether the employee’s pay period is biweekly (June 25) or semi-monthly (June 30). King County is bargaining the same extension for represented employees (currently set to expire on Dec. 31, 2020). Please see below if your union has approved the MOA. This list will be updated as new MOAs are signed.
