Adult Entertainer Safety Rulemaking

This rulemaking established requirements for panic buttons and blocklists in adult entertainment establishments. L&I has completed rulemaking for this project. The rule was adopted on May 3, 2022 and became effective July 1, 2022.

Beginning July 1, 2020, adult entertainers were required to take a “know your rights” training and provide proof of training completion in order to receive or renew an adult entertainer license issued by a local government.

Additional Safety and Security Considerations

The advisory committee considered whether additional measures would increase safety and security of adult entertainers. The committee also identified measures that would require legislative action and reported these recommendations to the Legislature in November, 2020.

See L&I’s Rulemaking Activity webpage for additional rulemaking details.
