Wage and Hour Exemptions
Employees may be exempt from wage and hour laws based on criteria associated with their salary, actual duties, and skills. Exempt employees neither receive overtime pay nor qualify for minimum wage. Alaska labor law defines these exemptions based on Executive, Administrative, or Professional status. Learn more here.
Alaska Labor Law Poster Update
All businesses within the State of Alaska must display the new Minimum Wage notice along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Alaska & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.
Order the Alaska Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
