An updated Oklahoma labor law poster includes a new penalty rate

The new penalty rate will be assessed against employers who are found to owe wages to an employee.

The change in the mandatory Oklahoma Minimum Wage Act poster states that if the Commissioner of Labor finds that wages are due to an employee a penalty of 2% per day —up to the total amount of wage claim— will be assessed against an employer. The previous penalty was 10%.

In addition, the termination of a workers’ employment is now included as a condition for instituting the wage claim penalty.
