Alaska Wage Payment Timing Requirements

Filed under Office & HR.

Employers in Alaska must comply with these state rules regarding the timing and frequency of wage payments.

Employees in Alaska must be paid at least monthly or semimonthly (the employee may choose the frequency of payment). No holdback is permitted.

An employer must notify an employee in writing at the time of hiring of the day and place of payment and the rate of pay. An employer must also notify employees of any changes in the employer's wage payment practices on the payday before the time of the change.

Notice of changes in wage payment practices must be conspicuously posted in the workplace.
