Protect educators' privacy & safety: Urge legislators to pass HB 1888!
House Bill 1888 would prevent public employers from releasing employees’ birth dates and payroll deduction information. Jennifer Marquez-Shell, a teacher-librarian from the Federal Way Education Association, recently spoke at a rally and implored lawmakers to pass HB 1888.
“I support House Bill 1888 because along with other educators and public workers, I deserve privacy and safety. I love my job, but my commitment to students and quality public education shouldn’t put my privacy and safety at risk.” Marquez-Shell said. “This bill will prevent my employer from releasing my birth date to those who may have bad intentions.
"I urge legislators to pass HB 1888 and to protect the privacy and safety of teachers and other public workers across Washington.”
