Wyoming Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Wyoming statutes do not currently provide any provisions with respect to overtime laws. Therefore, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act provides rules and guidelines for employers and employees with respect to mandatory overtime pay. The FLSA only requires mandatory overtime if an employee works longer than 40 hours in a particular workweek- defined as seven consecutive days. Overtime pay is calculated as one and one-half times the employee’s regular pay. Employers are not required to pay overtime if an employee works longer than eight hours in one day as long as the employee’s weekly total does not exceed 40 hours.

Wyoming also defers to the FLSA for guidelines with respect to rest and meal breaks. The FLSA does not require an employer to provide rest or meal breaks- however many employers provide these benefits in order to encourage a positive work environment. If an employer opts to provide a short personal rest break (typically no longer than 20 minutes) the employer must pay the employee during the break. Meal breaks may be paid or unpaid and an employer is within his legal rights to require an employee to eat while on duty.
