At Brian G. Miller Co., LPA, our Columbus minimum wage attorneys represent individual workers, and groups of workers, who have unpaid minimum wage claims against their employers. Often, minimum wage claims are violations against Ohio and Federal laws.
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), with some exceptions, employers must pay its employees at least a minimum wage of $7.25. In addition, Ohio law has similar requirements. Pursuant to the Ohio Wage Act, with some exceptions, employers must pay its employees a minimum wage of $8.70. The Ohio Wage Act and the FLSA also protect employees from being fired, or discriminated against, after making complaints, requests, or filing a lawsuit for unpaid minimum wages.
