Wyoming Wage Payment Timing Requirements

Filed under Office & HR.

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

In Wyoming, employees must be paid at least semimonthly and a 16 days holdover is permitted.

If a semimonthly payday occurs on a day other than a working day, the last preceding working day must be the payday for employees regularly paid at one place. Employers are permitted to make other arrangements with their employees by agreement covering special occasions.

A separate provision applicable to coal miners and laborers in or about any coal mine also provides for semimonthly payment of wages with a 16 day holdover.

Absent employees must be paid thereafter on demand at the usual place for payment.

Payments at more frequent intervals are permitted.
