State budget cuts will close some DOL offices on Monday, July 12, and some on Tuesday, July 13, as employees take the first of required temporary layoff days that must be taken over the next year.
Licensing offices that are normally open Monday through Friday will be closed on July 12, and offices that are normally open Tuesday through Saturday will be closed on July 13. Headquarter operations, including the customer service center, will be closed July 12. The temporary layoff days don’t affect county auditor or private vehicle licensing offices.
During office closures, DOL’s online services will still be available at dol.wa.gov.
