Utah Overtime Law



Utah Minimum Wage Law

The current Utah Minimum Wage is the same as the Federal Minimum Wage, $7.25 per hour.

Minors under the age of 18 must be paid the minimum wage in effect at the time, although employers may pay them $4.25 during the first 90 days of their employement.

Tipped employees (adults and minors) may be paid $2.13 per hour so long as the tips they earn bring them up to the minimum wage.

Last Paycheck

If the employee is separated by the employer, all wages are due immediately and payable within 24 hours of separation. If the employee does not have a written contract for a definite period and resigns, the wages become due and payable on the next regular payday. These provisions may not apply to the earnings of a sales agent earning commissions.

Utah Overtime Law

There is no state-specific Utah Overtime Law.  Instead, Utah workers who are covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act. are entitled to time and one-half their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek.
