Hours & Pay Regulations
State law does not require employers to provide any type of employee fringe benefits such as holiday pay, PTO, vacation pay, etc. to their employees. However, when an employer chooses to provide such benefits that the employer is responsible for establishing a written policy outlining how those benefits are earned and paid.
Employees covered by Wyoming’s minimum wage law must be paid $5.15 an hour unless they are covered by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the federal minimum wage is currently $7.25 per hour.
The above information on minimum wages might not be up to date & subject to change. Kindly access the DOL website for the current rates.
- Leave (paid or unpaid, at employer’s discretion) of up to five years for active duty, training or a qualifying physical exam;

- Returning members who apply for reemployment within the appropriate timeframe, based on length of service, must be reinstated to original positions. Reinstated employees may not be terminated without cause for one year.
