Washington State Law Against Discrimination - 49.60 RCW

The Washington Law Against Discrimination protects people from discrimination based on “race, creed, color, national origin, families with children, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, age, honorably discharged veteran or military status, or the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability.”

The Washington State Human Rights Commission enforces the Law Against Discrimination and focuses on the “elimination and prevention of discrimination in employment, in credit and insurance transactions, in places of public resort, accommodation, or amusement, and in real property transactions.”
