Minimum Wage

U.S. Department of Labor

The U.S. DOL regulates working conditions, wages, and payment practices, including wage issues.

  • Federal Minimum Wage: Idaho’s minimum wage is the same as the Federal minimum wage.
  • Wage and Payment Practices – Salary vs Wage: Paying an employee a salary rather than an hourly wage does not automatically classify her/him as exempt from receiving overtime pay; the duties performed determine their status. For questions about employee classification, contact the Idaho Department of Labor or the U.S. Department of Labor.
  • Overtime Pay
