Columbus, Ohio and Toledo, Ohio Minimum Wage Attorneys – Bryant Legal, LLC

The minimum wage in Ohio was raised in 2018. In Ohio, non-tipped employees must now be paid no less than $8.30 per hour (not including overtime). In order to comply with Ohio law, employers must pay Ohio employees at least an amount equal to Ohio’s minimum wage for all hours worked. If you are a non-tipped employee who is not receiving at least minimum wage of $8.30 per hour, you should contact either the Toledo, Ohio or Columbus, Ohio office to speak with one of our Ohio minimum wage attorneys today.

In addition to raising the minimum wage for non-tipped employees, Ohio also raised the minimum wage for tipped employees in 2018. Ohio’s minimum wage for tipped employees is now $4.15 per hour. Tipped employees are those employees who customarily and regularly receive more than $30.00 per month in tips. If you are a tipped employee who is not receiving at least the minimum wage of $4.15 per hour, you should contact either the Toledo, Ohio or Columbus, Ohio office to speak with one of our Ohio tipped employees attorneys today. Often times when there are minimum wage issues discovered with an employer, there are a variety of other issues that can come up with the manner in which employers compensate tipped employees.

In addition to the minimum wage requirement explained above, many other wage and hour issues still persist today, including:

  • misclassifying employees as independent contractors
  • automatic meal break deductions or other break deductions
  • improper deductions from wages
  • improper calculation of the proper overtime rates
  • bonuses or shift differentials not included in overtime rate calculations
  • off-the-clock work
  • failure to provide a proper tip credit notice to tipped employees
  • failure to pay employees for travel, meetings, off-site work, or training
  • compensatory or “comp time”
  • paying employees straight time (their normal hourly rate) instead of 1.5 times their regular rate of pay
