HR and Employment Law Resources for Utah

Utah state image

Utah has both employer-friendly and employee-friendly laws, but is probably more employer friendly. For example, Utah employers are required to provide wage notifications to new hires, but are permitted to perform drug tests if certain requirements are met. In addition, there are strict requirements for when an employer may ask about felony convictions, but Utah laws do not add to the list of federally protected classes.

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