Minimum Wage and Your Rights in Cleveland

Most employers pay minimum wage and those who do not are engaged in wage theft. The minimum wage is $9.30 per hour in Ohio for 2022. Certain circumstances make wage theft more likely. Three circumstances are most common:

  1. First is the failure to account for employee expenses. Pizza delivery drivers, couriers, and other drivers often do not have the cost of gas or vehicle maintenance factored into their paychecks, often resulting in wage violations.
  2. Unpaid final paychecks or missing paychecks are the second common violation. Whether deliberate or accidental, failure to pay wages on time can damage employee finances and violate the minimum wage laws.
  3. Finally, when tipped employees’ pay is deducted below minimum wage for breakage, mistakes, or other reasons, this can constitute a wage violation for failure to pay minimum wage.
