Mississippi Employment Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's section on the employment laws of Mississippi, which generally provide certain protections for employees. Mississippi, as in some other states, does not have its own wage and hour laws and therefore is subject to federal minimum wage, overtime, break period, and other related laws. Therefore, we have provided a summary of these federal laws. In addition, you will find information about Mississippi's whistleblower law, which protects public employees who speak out about their employer's illegal activities from being retaliated against; a listing of the state's official legal holidays; information about the state's "right to work" law; and much more. Click on a link below to learn more about Mississippi's employment laws.
