The current minimum wage law in Indiana is $7.25.
The minimum wage for tipped employees is $2.13.
Illinois law requires employers to pay non-exempt employees 1.5 times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
The federal overtime rule stipulates that the minimum salary requirement for administrative, professional, and executive exemptions is $684 per week, or $35,568 per year. Workers making at least this salary level may be eligible for overtime based on their job duties.
If an employee volunteers to work a seventh consecutive day in a calendar week, they must be paid their overtime rate for all hours worked that day.
There are no state laws regarding breaks or meal periods, so federal law applies. The federal law does not require employers to provide breaks, but if they choose to do so, breaks less than 20 minutes must be paid. Meal periods do not need to be paid as long as the employees are free to do as they wish.
Employers are required to provide either one or two breaks totaling 30 minutes to minor employees that are scheduled to work 6 or more consecutive hours.
