Mississippi Wage Payment Timing Requirements

Filed under Office & HR.

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

Employees must be paid:

  • every two weeks;
  • twice during calendar month; or
  • the second and fourth Saturday of each month.

A holdover of 10 days is permitted, except for public service corporations, which have a 15-day holdover period.

The requirement that employees be paid at least twice a month does not apply to exempt employees.
