In Idaho there are very specific laws of the workplace.  Employment Laws help protect employees from unfair or illegal activity by employers.  The Employment Law Attorneys at The Idaho Law Center will help you understand your rights and let you know if you are protected by Idaho law regarding employment.  If you believe that you have been treated unfairly or illegally, give us a call, (208) 472-2386 to speak to an Employment Law Attorney immediately.

Wage Claim - Back Wages

In Idaho it is illegal to withhold pay from an employee.  In Idaho, an employee who has had their pay illegally withheld can collect something known as treble damages.  If your employment law lawyer proves that your wages were illegally or improperly withheld and you are awarded your back wages, your employment law lawyer can ask for treble damages.  Treble damages triple the judgement against the employer.

Treble damages can be denied if you don't take the proper steps.  This is why it is important to contact an employment attorney right away if you have back wages that remain unpaid.  An employment attorney can help secure your right to treble damages.

If you have back wages owing to you, you may have a wage claim.  Give us a call, (208) 472-2386 to see how an Employment Law Lawyer at The Idaho Law Center can help you.


Employees have certain rights under Idaho and Federal Law.  You cannot be discriminated against based upon your race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or because you have a disability.  Sex-based wage discrimination is also illegal.  There is both Idaho and Federal Law to protect you and to allow monetary damages for discrimination.

If you have been discriminated against and you would like to speak with a Employment Lawyer in Boise, give us a call today, (208) 472-2386 and one of our lawyers will be happy to speak with you.  We always provide a free consultation so you have a chance to get to know us and to see how we can help you.

Wrongful Termination

Idaho is an "at will" state.  What this means is that if you don't have an employment contract to the contrary, you can be fired at will, for cause or for no reason at all.  A employment contract can protect you from this firing at will.  Idaho law, however, also has something known as public policy exceptions.  Idaho law provides some protection if you do not have an employment contract and you are fired.

If you have been wrongfully terminated, have been the victim of retaliation in the form of firing, or been led to believe that your job is secure, give us a call to speak to one of our Employment Attorneys.
