North Dakota Minimum Wage Laws

North Dakota adheres to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, as the state does not set a higher minimum wage. Employers must comply with this federal standard to ensure legal compliance with wage laws.


Meal & Rest Breaks

In North Dakota, employers are not required by state law to provide meal or rest breaks to adult employees. However, for shifts exceeding five hours, one unpaid meal break is typically expected to be provided, aligning with common workplace practices.

Filing Claims

Employees in North Dakota must file a claim for unpaid overtime wages within one year following the wage violation. This statute of limitations is shorter than the federal standard, emphasizing the need for timely claims filing.


New Dakota Overtime Pay Laws

North Dakota follows federal guidelines for overtime pay, requiring that employees receive overtime compensation at a rate of one and a half times their regular rate for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. It's crucial for employers to adhere to these regulations to avoid penalties.

Overtime Pay

Protections for workers

North Dakota uniquely requires overtime pay for hours worked on holidays, Sundays, or outside of scheduled shifts, provided the total hours exceed 40 in a workweek. This law aims to compensate workers fairly for inconvenient work hours and encourage reasonable scheduling.
