OFFICES AND OFFICERS - STATE - WASHINGTON STATE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION
COMPENSATION FOR SERVICE AS MEMBERS OF HEARING TRIBUNAL The Washington State Human Rights Commission has the power to compensate persons for service as members of hearing tribunals appointed under the law against discrimination, including members of the commission itself who serve as members of a hearing tribunal in accordance with RCW 49.60.250. However, because of Article XXX, § 1, (Amendment 54) of the state constitution, the compensation of tribunal members who are also commissioners cannot be increased during their respective terms of office as members of the Human Rights Commission.
