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. Arizona labor law defines these exemptions based on Executive, Administrative, or Professional status. Learn more here.
Arizona Labor Law Poster Updates
All businesses within the State of Arizona must display the new minimum wage along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Arizona & 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 Arizona Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
