HR and Employment Law Resources for the District of Columbia

District of Columbia state image

The District of Columbia is considered to be employee-friendly. There are numerous leave laws that an employer must grant, and several protected classes above those protected by federal laws. In addition, all employers, no matter the size (with certain exceptions such as homecare workers), must apply with the state Human Rights Act. However, this is only a small sample of the laws this state has.

This page is a round-up of the state and municipal laws in District of Columbia.
