Kentucky Employment Laws

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.
