The law applies to all political subdivisions of the state and all private employers, except those that are exempt from federal minimum wage requirements and that have less than $500,000 in gross annual revenue. The law does not apply to a person employed by a parent or sibling, or who performs babysitting services in the employer's home or on a casual basis (AZ Rev. Stat. Sec. 23-362).
The law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who exercise their rights under the law, file a claim, or assist another person to exercise his or her rights. An adverse action by an employer within 90 days after an employee has engaged in protected activity creates a presumption of retaliation, which may be rebutted by evidence that the action was taken for other reasons.
