Focus & Expertise


Generally, Washington is what is described as an “employment at will” state. In other words, an employer generally can discharge an employee for any reason unless it is in breach of a contract or illegal under the discrimination laws.

An employer is generally not required to treat employees equally unless doing so violates a contract or the discrimination laws. Unless the employer breaches a contract or violates the discrimination laws, your lawyer may not be able to bring a claim on your behalf against your employer for wrongful termination.
