Protecting Pay: Minimum Wage Claims in Ohio
February 3, 2011
Policy Matters Ohio examined all of the minimum-wage cases filed between July 1, 2008, and June 30, 2009 with the state of Ohio. The 940 complaints were filed in 73 of the state’s 88 counties, and most were resolved in favor of the worker. By far the largest number of complaints came in the accommodations and food service industry, including restaurants. This February 2011 report provides additional information on the complaints and recommends that the state upgrade its overall reporting on wage and hour enforcement.
