The workweek on all state, county, and municipal projects is 40 hours. Any hours over 40 must be compensated at 11/2 times the regular rate (UT Code Sec. 34-30-8). Any employer in violation of this law is guilty of a misdemeanor (UT Code Sec. 34-30-9).
An employer may ask the Utah Industrial Commission to certify that a longer period would not be illegal, and would not violate employees' health, safety, and welfare, as long as both parties to the issue have an opportunity to be heard.
Special limitations on hours of work apply to persons under the age of 18.
