Position Description
As a leader on workplace practices that promote equity, advance race and social justice, address wage gaps and create a fair and healthy economy for workers, businesses and residents, the City of Seattle created an Office of Labor Standards (OLS).

This position will handle a complex investigation caseload including directed investigations, company-wide investigations involving numerous ordinances, and investigations requiring in-depth legal research and analysis.

The Senior Labor Standards Investigator position is a full-time, hourly, over-time eligible position that will report to the Enforcement Manager.

We are increasing our staff and are recruiting for both full-time regular positions as well as temporary positions.
Job Responsibilities
•        Conduct investigations of alleged non-compliance of Seattle's Labor Standards (some claims involve both labor standard and civil rights discrimination violations) including highly sensitive and/or complex investigations such as directed investigations, company-wide investigations involving numerous ordinances, and investigations with complex legal issues.
•        Conduct remand investigations.
•        Determine legitimacy of complaint, gather and preserve evidence, examine witnesses, review payroll records, conduct complex research using various databases and other legal tools, analyze fact patterns and prepare and issue detailed formal determinations and orders.
•        Negotiate and draft legally binding settlement contracts and conduct conciliation in cases where a violation of non-compliance of the labor standards law is found.
•        Work on a variety of special projects, as assigned, that may include developing and leading presentations on Seattle's Labor Standards, reviewing labor ordinances, policies and procedures, recommending new legislation to policy makers and policies and procedures to OLS, analyzing and applying federal and/or state case law and regulations.
•        Provide mentorship to Labor Standards Investigators/Civil Rights Analysts. Provide input into performance plans and appraisals, hiring decisions and other personnel actions affecting Labor Standards Investigators/Civil Rights Analysts.
•        Perform related duties, including intake, as needed and required.
The work product of the Office of Labor Standards is subject to judicial scrutiny and must meet procedural and technical standards in accordance with applicable federal and state laws and regulations.
Education:  A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university, or a certified equivalency for foreign studies in Public or Business Administration, Human Resources Management, Industrial Relations,  Political Science or a closely related field/analytical discipline.  A law degree (J.D.) is preferred but not required.

Experience:  Three (3) years of professional experience with major work assignments emphasizing civil rights law enforcement, equal employment opportunity, complaint investigation, affirmative action program implementation, personnel administration, labor relations, or related work as a mediator in these areas (or a combination of education and/or training and/or experience which provides an equivalent background required to perform the work of the class).
