According to Ohio state overtime laws, non-exempt employees who exceed a 40-hour work week must be paid “time-and-a-half” (1.5 times their regular hourly rate) for every hour of overtime they work. Minimum wage in Ohio is currently $7.85, so this means that the minimum wage for overtime in Ohio is $11.77 per hour. The national employment lawyers at Phillips Dayes Law Firm know that it’s difficult for workers to protect their rights when the overtime pay laws in Ohio can seem somewhat complex, so we have compiled this overview of Ohio state overtime laws to help them learn more about the pay to which they are legally entitled.

Ohio State Overtime Exemptions

In Ohio, state overtime laws are closely based on the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), which is the body of laws enforced by the federal Department of Labor to ensure American workers are treated and paid fairly. According to both federal and Ohio state overtime laws, the following types of employees may not be entitled to overtime pay:

  • Executive
  • Professional
  • Administrative

Furthermore, the following additional types of employees may be exempt from overtime pay under Ohio law:

  • Independent contractors
  • People who live and work at the same address
  • Sales professionals who set their own hours
  • Transportation workers
  • Some agriculture and farm workers
