Holiday Staffing and Billing Cutoff
The holidays are coming! That means the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) will operate with fewer staff than usual between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it might take us longer than normal to answer your emails and messages. We appreciate your patience.
For billing questions, email Provider Hotline at PHL@Lni.wa.gov. If you prefer a phone call, email us your name and contact number in the subject line.
Important upcoming dates:
Friday, Nov. 11, is a state holiday. Billing cutoff will be Thursday, Nov. 10.
Thursday, Nov. 24, and Friday, Nov. 25, are state holidays. Bill cutoff will be Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Monday, Dec. 26, the day after Christmas, and Monday, Jan. 2, the day after New Year's Day, are observed state holidays. L&I will not be open for business.
Thank you, and happy holidays!
