Workers are protected by laws and rules covering workers' wages, working conditions, overtime pay, and prevailing wage on public works construction projects.
Washington State does not require employers to provide leave or pay for holidays, vacations, or bereavement.
Workers are entitled to protection from discrimination. L&I handles safety & health, wage & hour, and some other types of workplace discrimination.
L&I has created this optional salary budget tool to assist employers with planning. This is not a detailed compliance tool, but an estimating tool intended only to help employers.
