Ohio Changes Its Overtime Pay Requirements and Class Action Procedures

Effective on July 6, 2022, traveling to and from worksites and performing certain routine tasks will be excluded from overtime pay requirements. Also under the new law, an employee shall not join a lawsuit alleging a violation of Ohio’s overtime law unless the employee gives written consent to become a plaintiff and file that consent with the court in which the lawsuit is brought.
