  • Peice rate pay

    We do mostly piece rated jobs where I work here in Ohio but some are service jobs where I make a flat 5.25/hr. I work part time, 30 hrs/wk. Most the other part timers work 4, sometimes 5, 8 hr days and there are a few full time employees. We recently learned that if we fail to make our rate on the piece jobs they can use the 10 cent difference of our service jobs to compensate us. Another job we get in about twice a week is unloading a truck, where that pays $6.50/hr. My question is it lawful to take from our non-peice rated jobs to make up the difference if we don't make rate on the peice jobs? Thank You

    Yes it is legal, as long as you average at least minimum wage for all hours worked in the work week, and are paid overtime pay for any hours worked in excess of 40.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
