Utah State Flag


Utah Minimum Wage Laws

Utah adheres to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, as the state has not established a higher minimum wage. Employers in Utah must comply with this federal standard to ensure they meet the legal requirements for minimum wages.


Meal & Rest Breaks

Utah does not require employers to provide meal or rest breaks to employees. The provision of breaks is left to the discretion of employers, although it is common practice for employers to offer breaks to promote a healthy work environment.

2 Years

Filing Claims

In Utah, the statute of limitations for filing claims for unpaid overtime wages follows the federal guideline of two years, extended to three years for willful violations. Employees are encouraged to file within this period to address any discrepancies in overtime compensation.


Texas Overtime Pay Laws

Utah follows the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in requiring employers to pay overtime at one and a half times the employee’s regular rate for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. It is crucial for employers to adhere to these regulations to ensure fair labor practices.

Overtime Laws

Protections for workers

Utah uniquely does not have additional state-specific overtime laws beyond the federal requirements. This means that the standard FLSA rules apply uniformly across all sectors, without any state-specific exceptions or additional provisions.
