King County will now pay you to volunteer

King County now offers employees an additional way to support our communities. Eligible employees may use up to three days of sick leave each year to volunteer at any local school or any nonprofit organization participating in the King County Employee Giving Program. For more information, go to Volunteer leave on the Taking Leave page.



Domestic partner coverage changes

Effective Jan. 1, 2018, King County no longer offers employee benefits to unmarried partners and their children unless a state-registered domestic partnership has been established. This applies to most union groups and all non-represented employees. For more information, see the Domestic Partnership FAQ or contact Benefits, Payroll and Retirement Operations.
