Understanding Seattle's Wage and Hour Laws
As an employee in Seattle, you have certain rights when it comes to your wages and hours worked. These rights are protected by federal and state laws, as well as local ordinances specific to Seattle.

How Our Firm Can Help You
Our experienced attorneys assist union and non-union clients to strategically and effectively enforce their rights. For example, in Wingert v. Yellow Freight Systems, Inc. the Washington State Supreme Court held that all workers in Washington have a legally-enforceable right to a paid ten-minute rest period after every three consecutive hours of work.
In Spokane County, we obtained uninterrupted rest breaks for state nurses under the Industrial Welfare Act. We also advise clients on legislative action and on how wage & hour laws impact collective bargaining.
