Am I Exempt Under the FLSA?
Federal law governs whether you should be classified in Ohio as an independent contractor or employee. Individuals are often misclassified as independent contractors (and often given a 1099 tax form) by their employers. The result almost always means that the employer unfairly benefits from paying less wages and not paying payroll taxes. if you are wrongly classified as an independent contractor, you may be missing out on overtime and other benefits that employers are required to give to their employees.

Both federal and Ohio laws protecting employees are subject to statutes of limitations. This means that there are deadlines after which you can no longer file a claim against your employer even if your rights were violated. A wage and hour attorney can inform you how long you have to file a claim and whether there are other steps you should take to make your employer aware of your claim.
