Washington State Wage & Hour Class Action Information
How you can help your case.
If you believe you have been denied proper wages, document the situation as carefully as possible. Retain paystubs, timecards, personnel handbooks, employment contracts, and other written records relating to employment. If possible, keep your own record of the hours you work and do not get paid for if you believe the employer’s time records are inaccurate.
If you have a written employment agreement, review it to see if it contains a mandatory arbitration provision or any other term that might interfere with your assertion of rights in court. These provisions are not always enforced by the courts, but it will help the lawyer evaluate your case and your options.
As an employee, you can also report wage and hour violations to the Washington Department of Labor and Industries and the federal Department of Labor. However, if you are thinking about bringing a lawsuit, you should probably consult with an attorney before taking these steps.
