Ohio Wage and Hour Laws

Ohio workers are protected against wage theft by their employers under state and federal laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Ohio Constitution, and Ohio’s Minimum Fair Wage Standards Act. These laws require that employees be paid minimum wages and that they be paid for all hours worked. When employers disregard these laws and take advantage of their employees, Lalak LLC can step in to protect employees and seek accountability for employers who violate the law.

Common Ohio wage and hour violations include:

  • Misclassifying employees as independent contractors
  • Misclassification of employees as exempt from overtime pay
  • Improperly calculating or paying regular and overtime wages
  • Improper deductions from salary
  • Requiring employees to work “off the clock”
  • Failing to pay for work travel time
  • Failure to provide required breaks
  • Minimum wage violations
  • Not paying wages in a timely manner
  • Improper credit, deductions, or overtime pay for tipped or commissioned employees

Employers use these and other techniques to cheat workers out of money they have earned. But it can be difficult to speak up and fight against a large and powerful company. Lalak LLC will level the playing field. Let us investigate your situation, provide legal advice and representation, and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
