The New Law You Haven't Heard About

April 2006
Employment Law Notes
Sexual orientation discrimination was not the only employment related issue that consumed the Washington Legislature this year. Our representatives in Olympia passed another piece of legislation that will impact employers, and you probably haven’t heard about it. The new law authorizes the Department of Labor and Industries to issue citations to employers for violating any wage payment requirement. The law goes into effect June 7, 2006.
