Seattle and Tacoma Labor Law Attorneys

Assisting businesses with labor law compliance

If your business has employees, there are a large number of labor laws on both the federal and state level with which you must comply. Failing to comply with labor laws can result in fines and sanctions by the government and even in complicated legal claims filed by disgruntled employees. It is easier and more cost-effective to ensure compliance than to defend against labor lawsuits, many of which may include a large class of employees. However, even the most prudent employers may be accused of violating labor laws, in which case you should always have a highly experienced and skilled business attorney representing your interests.

If your business in Seattle or Tacoma needs assistance with any labor law-related matter, call the Dickson Frohlich at (206) 621-1110 or (253) 572-1000 for a free 15-minute consultation.

Labor laws involve many aspects of business

The body of labor laws set out by the Washington and the United States governments is extensive and covers a great number of employment-related issues. These issues include:

  • Minimum wage, tips, and other earnings
  • Overtime wages
  • Mandatory rest and meal breaks
  • Family and medical leave
  • Hours worked
  • Recordkeeping
  • Child labor
  • Workplace health and safety

Another issue arises when a business wrongfully classifies workers as independent contractors in order to try to avoid having to comply with labor laws. If your workers should actually be classified as employees, you may run into unforeseen legal disputes in the future. For this reason, you should always consult with an attorney to ensure you are properly classifying your workers and independent contractors.
