Understanding Oklahoma Labor Laws

Oklahoma labor laws give employers the right to charge employees a higher minimum wage if they receive more tips than the actual legal minimum hourly wage. This practice is called an “employer’s tip credit” and is allowed by the state. Employers may also legally compensate workers for all or part of the extra money they receive from employees for tips. This is known as a “tip pool”tip allocation”.

The right to a meal break is not required but if it is provided it must be done on the same day each week.

Oklahoma law requires that employers provide an employee with a legal minimum amount of pay for every hour worked.

Oklahoma has two primary classification systems of employee pay, the first is based on the performance level of the worker and the second is based on the employer’s assessment of the worker’s ability to perform specific tasks within their job. This means that some jobs pay much more than others, depending on the employer’s perceptions of a worker’s capabilities.
