Ohio Paychecks: What you need to know

Wages defined. “Wage” means the amount of money payable to an employee, including any guaranteed pay or reimbursement for expenses, any deductions made pursuant to a written agreement for the purpose of providing the employee with any fringe benefits, and any employee-authorized deduction (OH Rev. Code Sec. 4113.15). This includes an employee's commissions recorded by the employer, but does not include gratuities. “Wage” also includes the reasonable cost to the employer of furnishing board, lodging, or other facilities to an employee if the board, lodging, or other facilities are customarily furnished by the employer to the employees (OH Rev. Code Sec. 4111.01).

Employers must pay wages at least as frequently as semimonthly and not later than the first day of the month for wages earned between the first and the 15th day of the previous month, and by the 15th day of the month for wages earned between the 16th and the last day of the previous month. The employer may pay employees weekly or daily or use a longer period where custom, contract, or law dictates.
Wages must be paid by cash or check (OH Rev. Code Sec. 4111.01).
Ohio does not have a provision for direct deposit of wages by private employers. With prior authorization, employers may deposit an employee's pay directly into an employee's bank account. Direct deposit for public employers requires written authorization. The authorization must include the designation of a financial institution equipped to accept direct deposits and the number of the account into which the deposit is to be made. The authorization will remain in effect until withdrawn in writing by the employee (OH Rev. Code Sec. 124.151).
