Wage and hour rules for remote workers

Many UK employees are working remotely during the University’s response to COVID-19. Whether employees work remotely or on-site, rules for breaks, lunches and overtime, as outlined by Kentucky state law still apply. This includes fifteen-minute breaks for each four-hour period worked and more rules.
