Within two weeks you will receive an initial order, along with a cover letter explaining the Presiding Officer’s findings. The penalty check is made payable to the Washington State Treasurer, usually within thirty days.

Along with your initial order, you will also receive information about your appeal rights. This happens with a request for review by the full Commission.

Follow these procedures carefully if you wish to appeal. If there is no appeal before the Full Commission, the initial order becomes a final order. Superior Court handles any further appeals.
