Your wage claim will be reviewed for completeness and to make sure L&I has jurisdiction. You may be asked to provide additional information and/or evidence to support your claim. Once your claim is accepted, a letter (notice of claim) will be sent to your former employer. If the employer disputes your claim, you have the option of taking legal action on your own behalf. L&I cannot guarantee collection.
