Ohio Minimum Wage Increased to $7.85/Hour
by Robert Franco | 2013/01/03 |

Effective January 1, 2013, the minimum wage in Ohio has increased 15 cents to $7.85/hour.

Robert's Blog ::

A constitutional amendment in 2006 tied the minimum wage in Ohio to the inflation rate measured by the Consumer Price Index.  Ohio employers with gross receipts of more than $288,000 must pay the new minimum wage, $7.85 per hour.  Employers with gross receipts of $288,000 or less must pay the federal minimum wage, which is currently $7.25 per hour. The federal minimum wage has not changed since 2009.

Tipped employees, those who are engaged in an occupation in which he/she customarily and regularly receives more than $30.00 per month in tips, must receive a minimum wage of $3.93 per hour plus tips, an increase of 8 cents. Employers must be able to show that tipped employees receive at least the minimum wage when direct or cash wages and the tip credit amount are combined.

Also, as a reminder to all employers, the following information must be maintained for at least 3 years:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Occupation
  • Rate of Pay
  • Amount paid each pay period
  • Hours worked each day and each work week
