Minimum Wage Cases in and Around Fostoria, Ohio

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA) requires each state to enforce a minimum wage law. In Ohio, an employer that does not fulfill that obligation can be sued for back pay and monetary damages. With almost no exceptions, employers must compensate every full- and part-time hourly employee in the state with the minimum wage. Here is how employers in Fostoria, Ohio, and the surrounding areas may violate minimum wage laws:

• Falsify timesheets
• Make working unpaid overtime a condition of keeping a job
• Falsely classify employees as managers or independent contractors
• Never tell employees that they are eligible for the minimum wage
• Steal tips or improperly pool tips from “non-tipped” employees
• Switch employees from hourly status to salary
• Tell employees that they only work for tips
