Idaho HR and Employment Law

Idaho state image

Idaho is considered to be an employer-friendly state. The state has certain laws that go beyond what is required by federal law. For example, when hiring, an employer in this state may consider an applicant’s criminal history. In addition, while the state does not add any protected classes to federal law, it does require that an employer with at least five employees follow the antidiscrimination law.

This page is a round-up of the state and municipal laws in Idaho.
