Employee's Right

Washington State

You have many rights as an employee in Washington state. Fair pay, breaks, work hours, medical leave and more depend on your job, where you work, and how long you have worked there. Some jobs (such as ride-sharing with Lyft or Uber, or delivery with Amazon or DoorDash) are technically hiring you as a contractor and are not required to pay minimum wage, or to provide some of the same benefits as if you were working for a company.  

It is also important to know that Washington is an at-will employment state. Businesses may fire any employee at any time, for any or no reason, as long as they are not violating any employee protection laws. Although they may need a photocopy, your employer cannot take your personal documents such as ID, passport, or social security card. 

You should familiarize yourself with the following laws.
