Arizona Overtime: What you need to know

Arizona law requires that payment for overtime be made no later than 16 days after the end of the most recent pay period (AZ Stat. Sec. 23-351). If a holiday falls on the scheduled payday, an employer must pay on or before the scheduled payday. All other questions about overtime, including exempt professional, administrative, executive, and outside sales employees, are governed by federal law. Any employer that violates this law is guilty of a petty offense.
