The Department of Labor and Industries rigorously enforces Washington State’s wage and hour laws. Our state’s minimum wage is the highest in the nation, and it automatically adjusts based upon the federal Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W). Washington Courts have taken a firm line on enforcing workers’ rights to meal and rest breaks. The cities of Seattle and Seatac have passed complex local ordinances that raise some minimum-wage workers’ pay. The purpose of these wage and hour laws is to protect employees and ensure that Washington’s workforce is compensated fairly for the hours they work.

Regulations often change and overlap, and they are highly complex. They are often confusing to employers and employees alike. When businesses violate wage and hour laws, employees endure being over-worked and under-paid. This is unfair and difficult for the employees. It is also risky for businesses if employees file a class action lawsuit to address the problem.
