Missouri Overtime Law

Missouri Minimum Wage Law

The state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, the same as the Federal minimum wage.

Last Paycheck

Wages are due at the time of termination. If not paid at that time, the employee should contact their former employer by certified mail return receipt requested, requesting wages that are due. The employer would have seven days to respond to the written request. If the employer does not respond in seven days, because the state of Missouri does not have authority to collect wages for any individual, any moneys due would have to be collected by private legal action. 

Missouri Overtime Law

Overtime is based on a 40 hour workweek, not an 8 hour day. State minimum wage law and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires certain employers to pay time and one half times the regular rate of wages for hours over 40 in a workweek.
