Washington Wage Claim

Washington law generally requires an employer to pay a minimum hourly rate to all employees. If an employer fails to pay an employee all minimum wages, the employee may file a lawsuit and recover up to two times the wages due. Washington employees may also be covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act, or FLSA for short. The FLSA is the federal law that governs payment of the minimum wages. Where an employer fails to pay minimum wages, the employee may file a lawsuit and recover up to two times the minimum wages due. (Washington Minimum Wage)

Washington law generally requires employers to pay non-exempt employees 1 1/2 times their regular hourly rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. If an employer fails to pay an employee all overtime wages, the employee may file suit against their employer. The lawsuit would seek to recover up to two times the overtime wages due.
