  • Alabama does not have any wage and hour laws and does not have any state requirements on hours worked. Accordingly, employers should consult the federal guidelines on hours worked when determining whether time worked is compensable under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
  • Minors must be given a break period at certain times. See Break Periods.
