Wage Claims

justice-2060093_1280Washington State law offers very strong protections for workers. Under Washington State law an employer must pay at least the state minimum wage and also pay at least time and a half for every hour worked over 40 during a workweek. Employers who willfully fail to pay employees as required by law can be liable for double the amount that they owed the employe and the attorney fees incurred by an employee in a suit to collect his or her wages. Attorney Damian Mendez has years of experience with wage claims. Further, Mr. Mendez has been very successful in jury trials, arbitrations, mediations as well as negotiations on behalf of employees.
