About L&I's Work With Tribal Governments
The Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) recognizes the inherent authority of tribal nations and seeks to maintain the highest respect for tribal governance.
L&I is dedicated to the mission of keeping Washington safe and working. Our staff works collaboratively with tribal governments, medical providers, employers and workers in areas to support that mission.
L&I provides workers' compensation insurance coverage, oversees workplace safety and health, deals with wage compliance matters, and provides the trades industries, such as construction, with licensing, inspections and apprenticeships.
