Hawaii Wage Payment Timing Requirements
Employers in Hawaii must comply with these state rules regarding the timing and frequency of wage payments.
All employees and, therefore, all employers are covered by Hawaii's wage payment law.
The law requires that employees be paid at least twice a month on regular, predesignated paydays. If, however, a majority of employees in a recognized collective bargaining unit elect to be paid monthly, or if the Director of Labor and Industrial Relations permits monthly pay periods, they may be so paid. Each election is valid for a period of two years.
Wages are due and payable within ten days after the end of each pay period, except that where the Director permits monthly pay periods, all wages must be paid within 15 days after the end of the period.
