The current minimum wage in Utah is $7.25, according to state laws.
Utah does not have a law regarding overtime, so federal law applies. Non-exempt employees be paid 1.5 times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
The federal wage and hour overtime rule stipulates that the minimum salary requirement for administrative, professional, and executive exemptions is $684 per week, or $35,568 per year.
State law does not require employers to provide rest breaks or meal periods for adult employees.
If employers choose to provide breaks, 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 must provide at least a 30-minute lunch break within the first 5 hours of a minor employee’s workday.
Minors must also be given a 10-minute break for every 4 hours worked and cannot work more than 3 consecutive hours without a 10-minute break.
