Columbus Minimum Wage Attorney
Minimum Wage Attorneys in Columbus, Ohio will Protect your Rights to Fair Wages
Our Columbus minimum wage attorney will assist you with any issues resulting from your employer failing to pay you at least minimum wage for all hours worked.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Ohio’s Minimum Fair Wage Standards law require employers to compensate employees at least minimum wage for all hours worked. The federal minimum wage is $7.25, subject to states mandating a higher minimum wage than the federal minimum wage. For 2018, Ohio’s minimum wage for non-tipped employees is $8.30 per hour. This means that hourly non-exempt, non-tipped employees must earn at least $8.30 per hour for every hour worked.
If you are a tipped employee (meaning you receive more than $30 per month in tips), then you must be paid at least $4.15 per hour under Ohio law in 2018 ($2.13 under federal law). At all times, you must be compensated no less than minimum wage for all hours worked, so Ohio’s tipped employees must earn at least $4.15 per hour. If you’re not paid at least minimum wage, you may have a claim for the unpaid wages and should speak with our Columbus minimum wage attorney. If successful on your claim, you may receive the amount of the unpaid wages, liquidated damages, and attorney’s fees.
Employers may run into issues with paying the minimum wage if they do not properly pay the minimum wage, they do not pay any wages for a period of time, or they make deductions from employees’ pay that lower the rate of pay. The preceding are some of the circumstances that could lend themselves to minimum wage violations which our Columbus minimum wage attorney regularly handles.
