Oklahoma Minimum Wage Laws

Oklahoma adheres to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, as the state does not have a separate minimum wage law above this rate. Employers in Oklahoma must comply with this federal standard to ensure they meet legal wage requirements.


Meal & Rest Breaks

Oklahoma law does not require employers to provide meal or rest breaks to employees, mirroring federal guidelines. This applies to adult workers, while minors under 16 must receive a 30-minute break for every 5 consecutive hours of work.

2 Years

Filing Claims

In Oklahoma, claims for unpaid overtime wages must be filed within two years of the date the wages were due, according to federal guidelines. This statute of limitations reflects the federal standard and applies to most wage and hour claims.


Oklahoma Overtime Pay Laws

Oklahoma follows federal overtime provisions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), requiring employers to pay employees one and a half times their regular rate for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. Compliance with these regulations is mandatory for all employers operating within the state.
