Ohio Minimum Wage Laws

As of 2023, Ohio's minimum wage is $10.10 per hour for businesses with annual gross receipts over $371,000. For smaller businesses, the state minimum wage defaults to the federal rate of $7.25 per hour.


Meal & Rest Breaks

Ohio does not require employers to provide meal or rest breaks for adult employees, aligning with federal guidelines. However, minors under the age of 18 are entitled to a 30-minute uninterrupted break for every five consecutive hours worked.

2 Years

Filing Claims

In Ohio, employees must file a claim for unpaid overtime wages within two years of the date the wages were due. This period is set by both state and federal laws, emphasizing the importance of timely legal action.


New Dakota Overtime Pay Laws

Ohio follows the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for overtime, requiring that employees be paid one and a half times their regular rate of pay for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. Employers must comply with these overtime rules to ensure fair labor practices.

Protections for workers

Unique to Ohio, the state mandates that employers must provide overtime compensation not only for hours over 40 per week but also for employees who work seven consecutive days in a single workweek. For any work on the seventh consecutive day, workers must be paid at least one and a half times their regular rate for the time worked that day.
