North Dakota Overtime Law

North Dakota Minimum Wage Law

The minimum wage in North Dakota is $7.25 per hour. North Dakota does not have a training wage.

Breaks and Rest Periods

Any employee who works a shift exceeding five hours is entitled to an unpaid 30 minute uninterrupted meal break when there are two or more employees on duty. Other breaks, such as fifteen minute "coffee" breaks, are at the employer's discretion to offer but must be paid if they are less than 30 minutes.

Last Paycheck

A separated employee's wages become due and payable at the regular payday(s) established in advance by the employer for the period(s) worked by the employee. In other words, payroll should simply follow its normal course.

North Dakota Overtime Law

North Dakota Overtime Law requires that most employees receive time and a half their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.  Like the Federal Overtime Law, North Dakota Overtime Law deems certain types of employees exempt from overtime pay requirements.
