Patagonia to pay $55,000 after allegedly violating Seattle scheduling law

July 13, 2022

Outdoor retailer Patagonia will pay nearly $55,000 to current and former Seattle retail employees after allegedly failing to post their schedules with enough notice.

Seattle’s secure scheduling law requires large retail and food service companies to post hourly employees’ schedules at least two weeks in advance, pay employees when the company changes the schedule after it’s posted and pay workers extra when they have fewer than 10 hours between closing and opening shifts (known as “clopening”).
