Kentucky Employment Laws
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
Employment laws regulate the relationship between employer and employee (and, in some instances, with labor unions), setting standards for workplace safety, wage policies, and other employment-related matters. Federal laws protecting employees' rights are applicable to all states and serve as the basis, but many states offer additional worker protections. Kentucky does not have a so-called "right to work" law, but does have statutory protections for both private- and public-sector whistleblowers. Additional laws establish legal holidays, the minimum wage, pay day requirements, and other conditions of employment. Click on a link below to learn more about employment laws in the Bluegrass State.
