Washington’s age of consent laws apply to both heterosexual and homosexual conduct.Most states allow minors to consent to sex with a person who is close in age to them—even if they are below the age of consent.Over the past nine years, corporations have shelled out nearly trillion to buy back their own stock, a ploy that raises stock prices and, right along with them, CEO compensation. ""You have a part time job, that's better than no job at all."" –Dan Quayle There is no single law protecting the rights of employees while they are off work.Instead, other areas of the law, such as discrimination, drug testing, and harassment laws, protect an employee's off-duty conduct. I recently tried to get promoted to a managerial position but I was denied because I would be supervising my husband.Whether your company can do this depends on where you live, as some states have laws preventing employers from discriminating against smokers, but other states provide no such protection and leave employers free to fire employees who smoke.Most of the companies implementing anti-smoking policies are giving their employees time to quit smoking, and are supporting their efforts by sponsoring programs and paying for aids to quit smoking, such as medication, nicotine gum, and patches.And lastly, minors aged 14 or 15 can consent to sex with a person who is 4 years older or less.While some may find it questionable that any 11-year-old is mature enough to give genuine consent to sex (which necessarily requires a certain level of emotional maturity, and a reasonable understanding of the possible consequences), Washington allows this legally.
