Wage and Hour Laws in Ohio
Ohio and federal laws protect workers’ rights to overtime pay and provide a legal remedy for claims against employers. Wage and hour laws and claims can present a variety of issues that must be handled by an experienced law firm. As an example, employers often do not include incentive, shift differential, commissions, bonus or COVID pay in calculating overtime.

Exempt and Non-Exempt Employment Status in Ohio
Exempt and non-exempt status, which determines the right to overtime pay, is primarily based on a worker’s job responsibilities and how they’re paid. Considerations include whether the employee is paid on an hourly or salaried basis, and whether they perform supervisory or administrative tasks.
Examples of common exempt positions include:
- Computer-related workers
- Outside salespeople
If you do not perform work as listed above and don’t receive overtime, you may have a claim. Exemption status cannot be determined purely on job title. Our unpaid overtime attorneys can review your case and help you understand whether you’re an exempt or non-exempt worker who is entitled to extra pay.
