What Happens After I File A Wage Claim With L&I?

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.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
