  • Mandatory raise in Wa?

    In Wa State after your 90 days probation period is it mandatory for the company to give you a raise if you pass.

    Unless it's it's a bona-fide contract it's not necessary under federal or state law to give a raise after a probationary period.


    • #3
      In all 50 states, unless there is a bona fide contract saying otherwise, the ONLY time a pay raise is mandatory is if the employee is working for exactly minimum wage, and minimum wage is raised by either an act of Congress or your state legislature.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
