Spokane Wrongful Termination Attorney

Today’s workplaces in Washington and Idaho provide employees many rights to insure fair treatment.


A termination based upon race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, religion, age (if the employee is at least 40), disability, citizenship status, or genetic information is prohibited under both Idaho, Washington and Federal law.  Early intervention by an attorney in a workplace dispute where the employer is violating the law may save your job.


In addition to the protection of the Washington Law Against Discrimination and Federal Title 7 Washington and Idaho; federal law also provides protections and rights for employees who complain to the appropriate government agency about violations of overtime law and workplace safety.


If you have been terminated in circumstances you believe may be illegal, contact Best Law, PLLC to schedule your initial consultation.

Experienced Overtime Violations Lawyer

Overtime law and regulations are complex.  More and more employers are acting in violation of employee protections; this is particularly common in two areas:


  1. Hourly employees simply being told that their job doesn’t pay overtime.
  2. Misclassification of hourly work into salaried positions.  Both of these common issues can be illegal and an attorney can initiate a claim for overtime hours worked.


Attorney fees and up to triple the unpaid wages can be recovered.


If you are a “manager” who doesn’t supervise anyone or if you are being made to work long hours without overtime contact Best Law, PLLC to schedule your free initial consultation.

Spokane Whistleblower Litigation Lawyer

The US Code 31 U.S.C. §§3729-3733 authorizes individuals to initiate law suits on behalf of the federal government when they are aware of the government being defrauded.  The individual initiating the suit (referred to as the relator) can be entitled to a percentage of the money that the federal government recovers in the suit.
