The Washington State Human Rights Commission has jurisdiction over discrimination on the
basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, creed, sexual orientation and gender
identity, HIV/AIDS/Hepatitis C, maternity and pregnancy discrimination, use of a service animal
and whistleblower retaliation. The Commission provides civil rights enforcement of Washington
law against discrimination which prohibits discrimination in employment (employers with eight or
more employees), housing, places of public accommodation and credit and insurance
transactions. In addition, the Commission provides education, training, prevention, partnerships,
outreach, intergroup relations, policy development and studies. As of July 21, 2007, the
Commission will have jurisdiction over veterans and military status nondiscrimination.
The Commission investigates about 1,000 complaints a year and responds to about 12,000
inquiries. Founded in 1949, the Commission is the fourth oldest civil rights agency in the nation.
In each of the last two Legislative sessions, its jurisdiction has been expanded to include sexual
orientation and gender identity as well as veterans and military status.
The Commission is composed of five commissioners appointed by the Governor, who select an
Executive Director. The operating budget is approximately $7 million per biennium. Sources of
revenue include state allotments and federal contracts with the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission and Housing and Urban Development. The Commission employs approximately 40
people in the Olympia headquarters office as well as field offices in Seattle, Spokane, Yakima
and Vancouver. The Commission plans to open a Tri-Cities office in fiscal year 2008 or 2009.
