According to Idaho state overtime pay laws, non-exempt employees in the state of Idaho who work more than a 40-hour work week must be paid 1.5 times their normal hourly rates for all overtime hours. Since the minimum wage in Idaho is $7.25 per hour, the corresponding minimum wage for overtime hours is $10.88. Idaho overtime wage laws are complex, and it’s far too easy for employers to take advantage of this complexity to illegally deny their workers the overtime pay to which they are legally entitled. If you work in Idaho, it’s a good idea for you to familiarize yourself with the details of Idaho overtime laws so that you can protect your right to fair pay.

Idaho State Overtime Exemptions

The FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) was established by the federal government to ensure American employees are treated fairly. Idaho state overtime laws are closely modeled after these national laws, in that the following types of Idaho workers are exempt from (not entitled to) overtime pay:

  • Executive
  • Professional
  • Administrative

Outside sales professionals who set their own hours may also be exempt from Idaho overtime pay. Additionally, other types of workers listed below may not be entitled to overtime pay under Idaho laws:

  • Farm workers
  • Agriculture workers
  • Transportation industry workers
  • Live-in workers

Idaho Overtime Lawsuit Consultations

Unfortunately, it is all too common for employees to be illegally denied the overtime pay to which Idaho state overtime laws entitle them. A two-year statute of limitations on overtime lawsuits in Idaho means that cheated workers may recover overtime pay illegally denied to them for up to two years prior to the date on which they file an Idaho overtime lawsuit claim. Overtime laws in Idaho may be confusing to many workers, so it’s a good idea for you to retain the counsel of an employment lawyer familiar with Idaho overtime laws to make sure your rights are protected.
