Wyoming Sick Leave laws & compensation compliance analysis

Wyoming Sick Leave: What you need to know

There is no Wyoming law requiring private sector employers to provide employees sick leave, paid or unpaid, although many employers do grant it as an important employee benefit.
It is important to remember, however, that if sick leave is promised, an employer may create a legal obligation to grant it. Employers should regularly review statements made in handbooks or elsewhere to ensure that they accurately reflect current policies. If changes are necessary, the policy should be revised and employees notified of the changes.

For select cities, BLR will provide a brief overview of these requirements.
If your locality is not listed below or if you require further guidance on a law that is listed, we recommend contacting the area chamber of commerce or the appropriate local enforcement, executive, or legislative body (e.g., city council, city labor board, mayor's office).
Where a conflict exists between laws, employers should follow the law granting the most generous employee benefit.
