Washington State Business Owners and other business owners, Beware of a scam.


There is a scam out there that should be aware of. I received a FINAL NOTICE that looks very official that states if you do not comply with the law you could be fined and/or audited. There is a billed attached that it makes like you need to pay to come into compliance.


This is a scam from a Company called the “Labor Standards Compliance Office” located at 1201 Pacific Ave Tacoma WA 98401.


What this really is a poster company that is trying to sell you poster that you need to have present at your company workplace if you have employees. The scam is that these required posters are free from the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. I have contacted L&I on this because it looked a bit fishy and I have no employees so I do not need to have these posted. But this is very deceptive and could easily be construed that you need to comply by paying the fee.


Here is two images of the letter I received.

I had contacted the Washington State Attorney General and file a complaint, which I have done. Here is a link to file a complaint if needed-http://www.atg.wa.gov/FileAComplaint.aspx#.UrR-2vSIB8E. Anyone that receives this letter should file a complaint with the State Attorney General.


I hate these companies and you always be concerned if you receive a letter such as this. Notice there is no phone number to contact them.

Don, another form of terrorism in my opinion--these wackos should be put away for a long time.

 Good morning, Don. It seems as if there are those who want to find ways to relate the system just to make a buck. This is so sad.

Charlie, I actually talked to L&I about this and they said that they knew of this and need people to report it to the AG.

Michael, Yeah I hate these type of tatics.
