Oklahoma Overtime Law



Oklahoma Minimum Wage Law

The federal and Oklahoma minimum wage of $7.25 per hour has been in effect since July 24, 2009.  Unless otherwise covered by federal wage and hour laws, an Oklahoma employer must comply with state-specific Oklahoma minimum wage laws if the company has at least 10 full-time employees or equivalent and/or grosses more than $100,000 annually.

Lunch and Rest Periods

Neither federal nor state law require employers to provide breaks to employees age 16 or older. Mandatory break laws only apply to children under the age of 16. Breaks and lunch periods are considered benefits and remain at the discretion of the employer.

Frequency of Payments

Every employee (except exempt employees) shall be paid all wages due at least twice each calendar month. State, county, municipal and exempt employees shall be paid a minimum of once each calendar month.

Last Paycheck

Regardless of whether you quit or were fired, your last paycheck is due on your next regularly designated pay day.

Oklahoma Overtime Law

There is currently no state-specific Oklahoma Overtime Law.  If the company is required to comply with Federal wage and hour laws, time and one half should be paid to non-exempt employees for all hours worked over 40 in the work week.
