 Wage and Hour Law PDF

The Wage and Hour Law is a labor law posters poster by the Hawaii Department Of Labor and Industrial Relations. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in Hawaii, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.

This poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where all employees will see it. As of 2020, this poster describes the minimum wage, how overtime is dealt with and the right employees have to be notified their rate of pay and paydays. The law poster also details that employees cannot have their wages withheld by their employers, have the right to collect unpaid wages, and the right for family leave if a child is born or adopted by an employee. Other rights include the right to be paid the prevailing wages on government construction projects, the right to refuse a lie detector test, the right to file a complaint if suspended, discharged, or discriminated against solely because of a work injury for an employee getting Workers' Compensation under the Wage Standards Division.

Overtime - You have the right to be paid overtime at least one and one-half times your regular rate for all hours 
worked in excess of 40 in a workweek. The law also requires employers to maintain payroll records for at least 6 
 	The  Hawaii  Wage  and  Hour  Law  exempts  certain  types  of  employment  from  minimum  wage  and 
overtime, such as outside salespersons and employees in an executive, administrative, supervisory, or 
professional capacity. 
Payment  of  Wages  - You  have  the  right  to be  paid  at  least  twice  monthly  on  regular  paydays  designated  in 
advance  in  cash,  by  checks  convertible  into  cash,  or  within  certain  requirements,  by  direct  deposit  into  the 
employee's account  at  a  federally  insured  depository  institution  or pay card; within  7  days  after  the end of  each 
pay period; paid wages in full at the time of discharge or no later than the next working day; or paid no later than 
the next regular payday if you quit or resign. However, if you give your employer one pay period’s notice of your 
intention to quit, you must be paid on your last day of employment. 
Notification Requirements - You have the right to be notified in writing at the time of hire of your rate of pay 
and  the  paydays.  Any  changes  in  pay  arrangements prior  to  the  time  of  such  changes,  and  of  any  policies  with 
regard  to  vacation,  sick,  or  holiday  pay  must  be  made  in  writing  or  through  a  posted  notice.  You  must  also  be 
furnished with a pay statement on payday showing gross wages, amount and purpose of each deduction, net pay, 
date of payment, and pay period covered. If your employer requires that you give advance notice of quitting and 
you are terminated after giving that notice, your employer is liable for the wages you would have earned up to the 
last day you intended to work unless you were terminated for cause. 	
 Withholding of Wages - You have the right to ensure that there are no wrongful withholdings of your wages. 
Your employer may not collect, deduct or obtain authorization to deduct for: 	
 	Fines (For example - an amount you must pay to your employer for being   tardy.) 	
 	Cash shortages in a common cash register or cash box used by two or more people, or in a cash register 
or cash box under your sole control unless given an opportunity to account for all moneys received at 
the start of a shift and all monies turned in at the end of a  shift. 	
 	Penalties or replacement costs for  breakage. 	
 	Losses due to your acceptance of checks which are later dishonored if the employer  has  authorized 
you to accept  checks. 	
 	Losses due to faulty workmanship, lost or stolen property, damage to property, or default of customer 
credit or nonpayment for goods or services received by customers, as long as those losses are not due 
to your willful or intentional disregard of the employer’s interest. 	
 Your employer or prospective employer cannot require you to pay a job application processing fee. Your employer 
may deduct state and federal withholding taxes, amounts specified by court orders and amounts you authorized 
in writing. 
Collection of Unpaid Wages - You have the right to file a complaint for unpaid wages with the Wage Standards 
Division within one year from the time the wages became due. Certain executives, administrators, professionals 
and outside salespersons may need to file a claim in a court of competent jurisdiction. 
Hawaii Family Leave Law - You have the right to receive up to 4 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave for the 
birth  or  adoption  of  your  child,  or  to  care  for  your  child,  parent,  sibling,  spouse  or  reciprocal  beneficiary  with  a 
serious  health  condition.  You  are  eligible  only  if  you  have  at least  6  consecutive  months  of  service,  and  your 
employer has 100 or more employees. Accrued paid leaves may be substituted for any part of  the 4-week period. 
If your employer provides for paid sick leave, you may use up to 10 days of your accrued and available sick leave 
per year unless a collective bargaining agreement provides for more than 10 days.
