State Plan Standards and Regulations

  •  Wyoming OSHA issues new regulations within six months of the Secretary of Labor’s announcement.
  • According to the Wyoming Occupational Health and Safety Act, Wyoming OSHA may create requirements when no equivalent federal OSHA standards exist, but it may only adopt standards that are more relaxed than federal standards.
  • Wyoming has rules for drilling, maintaining, and special maintaining oil and gas wells in addition to an anchor standard. In these areas, OSHA does not have any equivalent rules.

Labor Laws in Wyoming

Fair Employment PracticesThe Wyoming Fair Employment Practises Act (WFEPA) forbids discrimination based on protected characteristics such as age, gender, race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy, and disability for employers with two or more employees.
Equal PayAll employers must pay men and women equally for equal work under the Wyoming Equal Pay Act. It is against the law for an employer to pay workers less than those of the opposite gender for doing the same job with the same level of responsibility, skill, and effort while working in an environment with comparable working conditions. This is known as gender discrimination.
Minimum WageWyoming's hourly minimum wage is $5.15. Employers governed by the federal Fair Labour Standards Act must pay the $7.25/hour federal minimum wage. For the first 90 days of employment, workers under 20 may get $4.25.
Child LaborMinors under 16 are prohibited from working in hazardous jobs such as operating large construction equipment or jobs considered harmful to a child's morality, health, or safety. Except for nonhazardous jobs at a company owned by their parents, grandparents, legal guardians, or farm, domestic, or garden work, minors under 14 are not allowed outside school hours.
Pay FrequencyEmployers in Wyoming are allowed to pay their staff members monthly or as otherwise arranged. However, some firms (such as railroads, mines, and refineries) must pay their staff on the first and fifteenth of each month.
Wage DeductionsEmployers are permitted to remove money from employees' paychecks for a variety of reasons, including when doing so is mandated by the law, for cash flow problems or property damage, and union dues. However, some requirements must be met for the deductions.
Health Care ContinuationAll employers in Wyoming who are not covered by the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act are generally subject to the state's continued health care coverage requirement. Under Wyoming law, qualified employees and dependents may elect to extend their health benefits for up to a year after their coverage expires due to losing their jobs, memberships, or eligibility for coverage.
Leaves of AbsenceNot many laws apply to all companies in Wyoming regarding the amount of mandatory time off and employee leaves of absence. These regulations cover jury duty leave, voting leave, military leave, and leave for crime victims/witnesses.
Health and SafetyWhile operating a motor vehicle on a public street or highway, drivers cannot type, transmit, or read text messages using a portable electronic wireless communication device in Wyoming. It is acceptable to use voice-activated or hands-free technology.
Final PayA terminated or resigned employee must be compensated in cash, by cheque, or bank draught that may be cashed. Any sum an employee incurred while employed and owes the employer may be deducted from final earnings by the employer.
