Paying Terminated Employees in Washington

Filed under Office & HR.

Employers in Washington must comply with these state requirements when making the final wage payment to terminated employees.

In Washington, employers generally must pay discharged or quitting employees wages due at the end of the established pay period.

The provisions pertaining to employees who are discharged or withdrawn do not apply to employment that normally involves working for several employers in the same industry interchangeably and for which a plan for the weekly payment of wages at a central place or places has been set up in accordance with the statutory provisions.
