    Are you non-exempt employees? Salaried exempt employees never are entitled
    to any pay/comp. time over their regular fixed weekly salary no matter how many hrs. they work during the work week.

    If you are non-exempt, are you working just 40 hrs. a week? If so, there is nothing
    illegal about your employer reducing you to 40 hrs. to keep from paying OT/comp
    time. (unless you have a binding employment contract guaranteeing over 40 hrs. a
    week)

    As long as min. wage requirements are met, the employer does not have to give a
    raise (unless there is a binding employment contract guaranteeing a raise).

    Are they sending you home after 40 hours? It's not clear, but it is not illegal to cap employees at 40 hours a week to prevent them going into overtime. There is also no law requiring them to offer comp time instead of overtime.

    The only time an employee is legally required to receive an increase in pay is if the person is making the minimum wage and the minimum wage is increased. All other pay increases are at the discretion of the employer.

  • NEED HELP ON VILLAGE OR CITY LABOR AND OVERTIME LAWS Ohio

    Is it legal for a village or city employee to be forced to cut overtime? Employees scheduled a regular 10 hr day, 4 days a week, but are required to work over 10 hrs a day on any given day if needed. Employee has worked for village for 10 yrs, and until recently was paid for overtime, or was permitted to save it as comp time. Now village trustees and administrators say they are over-budget, and are allowing no overtime pay. Employees are not given the option to save any overtime hrs as comp time or otherwise, simply forced to take any extra hrs worked as time off at the end of the week. Also, one particular employee, who has been with the village for 10 yrs, only makes $11 per hr, and is only eligible for a 50 cent raise once every 2 yrs. Can anyone tell me if this is even LEGAL and if not, refer me to the law that states it is not?
