Wyoming Hours of Work: What you need to know

The standard workday for miners is 8 hours, which may be extended by agreement to no more than 16 hours in any 24-hour period. The standard 8-hour day does not apply in cases of emergency, defined as any condition which, if not corrected immediately, would jeopardize human life or property (WY Stat. Sec. 27-5-102). Any employer that threatens or takes punitive action against any employee who refuses to work more than the hours specified by this law is guilty of a misdemeanor that may be punished by fines of up to $500 or imprisonment for up to 6 months, or both (WY Stat. Sec. 27-5-108; Sec. 27-5-109; Sec. 27-5-110).
