ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP   PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

Issaquah Law Group - Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

LOCATION: We are located on the Eastside in Issaquah, convenient to Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish and North Bend. However, we provide legal services in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County and throughout the entire state of Washington.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

Get Ready for Paid Sick Leave in Washington State and Minimum Wage Increase

In 2016, Washington voters approved Initiative 1433, which requires employers provide paid sick leave to its employees. Here are the basics:

  • Most employees will accrue leave at the rate of one hour for every forty hours worked.
  • This includes part-time and seasonal workers.
  • Sick leave must be paid at the employees usual hourly rate.
  • Unused sick leave can be carried over up to 40 hours.
  • Employees are eligible to use sick leave after ninety (90) days of employment. 

Sick leave may be used for caring for themselves or for a family member; if a workplace or child's school is closed for a health related reason; or when the absence qualifies under the Domestic Violence Leave Act. Of course, retaliation for the use of this sick time is strictly forbidden

Of course, nothing prevents you, as an employer, from being more generous in your sick time policies. 

In addition, the 2017 minimum wage will be raised to $11/hour. 

If you have any questions regarding implementation, feel free to contact the Attorneys at Issaquah Law Group. Our attorneys are here to help businesses in Bellevue, Mercer IslandIssaquah, North Bend, Preston, Woodinville, and the rest of the Eastside, to ensure you are compliant with the new rules. We are here to help!
