The federal government sets minimum standard for employment protection, such as the federal minimum wage and laws prohibiting discrimination. But states have their own employment laws, either strengthening federal laws or adding new protections altogether. The basic minimum wage in Ohio is $7.25 per hour, but goes up to $7.95 per hour if the employer grosses over $283,000 annually. This section covers Ohio employment laws and regulations, including state civil rights laws; payday requirements; legal holidays; statutes protecting whistleblowers; and labor laws affecting unions.
