  • Ohio - no chairs shop floor

    Hi, can anyone point me to a place where I can get information on Ohio laws concerning how long a person must stay on their feet at a work-table ( employer is saying absolutely no chair/sitting while working ). Looking for any information on what is legal. Employer seems to be intentionally causing back problems for older employees. Thanks for any help.

    There is no law in Ohio or any other state which requires an employer to provide chairs on the shop floor.

    If a specific individual is having medical problems with that policy, then they can address that on an individual basis - if the problem is severe enough to qualify under the ADA.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Then that is one dumb employer once the back strain claims start adding up.
