Moore v. Health Care Authority
and State of Washington
King County Superior Court
Civil Case No. 06-2-21115-4 SEA
Non-Permanent State Employees Health Benefits Case
This class action was brought by State of Washington employees who worked at least half-time on nonstandard work schedules. The employees were eligible for employer-paid health insurance, but the State failed to provide that health insurance even though the employees averaged at least half-time. This class consisted mainly of employees that the Health Care Authority classified as "nonpermanent" and "career seasonal" employees.
The Superior Court held that class members were entitled to receive state-paid health insurance. This case settled, and the Court entered findings of fact, conclusions of law, and an order approving the Settlement Agreement on June 24, 2016.
