Director's Orders

The Wage Payment Act requires the Department of Labor & Industries to investigate all wage complaints.

This law requires that, unless a complaint is otherwise resolved (withdrawn or paid), L&I must issue either a Determination of Compliance (DOC) or a citation and Notice of Assessment (NOA) ordering the payment of wages, interest, and penalties.

After an NOA or DOC is issued by L&I, the worker or employer may appeal L&I's decision to the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH). An administrative law judge presides at the OAH and issues an initial order after a hearing is held.

L&I, the worker, or the employer may appeal the OAH's initial order to the director of the Department of Labor & Industries. The director then conducts a review and issues a final order.

The director also reviews OAH orders and issues final orders in child labor, protected leave, apprenticeship, and prevailing wage cases. These orders will also be posted here when they are issued.

Director's orders issued since 2016 are located directly below.
