Hello, are there any major differences in state employment

Hello, are there any major differences in state employment law between Arizona and Washington state?

There are no major differences in the employer-employee relationship structure. Both states follow the "employment at will" doctrine with regard to non-contract employees.


The biggest difference is probably in the area of "right to work" law. Arizona is a right to work State, while Washington is not. All this means is that an employee can't be forced to join a union and pay dues in Arizona, while they can in Washington.


The other major difference is the minimum wage. Arizona is $7.65, while Washington's is quite a bit higher at $9.04 per hour.
