Kan. Admin. Regs. § 44-7-108 - Private non-prison employment

(a) The principal administrator of any facility designated by the secretary for such a program shall establish a program whereby inmates having a minimum or medium security classification may work at paid employment for a private industry or other business approved by the secretary. The program shall be referred to as private, non-prison employment. The program shall be distinct from any program of employment of inmates by a private business which is leasing space on the premises of the correctional facility. No inmate shall be engaged in the private, non-prison employment program unless minimum wage is paid. Minimum wage shall be state minimum wage unless federal contracts are involved. If federal contracts are involved, minimum wage shall be the higher of the federal or state minimum wage.
(b) All employees of a private, non-prison program business shall be part of and paid by that business. Corrections officers necessary to provide security for inmate workers shall be provided by the correctional facility.
