Ohio requires that employers post a number of notices informing workers of their rights and obligations under various employment laws. The notices must be placed conspicuously enough to be seen easily by employees as they enter or exit the workplace.
Minimum wage/wage and hour laws. All employers covered by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state and political subdivisions must post the notice State of Ohio Minimum Wage, which summarizes minimum wage rates, overtime rates, handicapped rates, persons exempt from the minimum, and permanent records the employer must keep (OH Rev. Code Sec. 4111.09). Employers must also provide each newly hired employee with the employer's name, address, telephone number, and other contact information. Employees must also be given updates if any of this information changes (OH Rev. Code Sec. 4111.14).
Child labor. All employers must post the notice Ohio Minor Labor Laws, provided by the Department of Commerce, telling employees about permitted maximum working hours, times of day allowed, and prohibited occupations, and outlining other regulations concerning minor employees. Employers also must post, at the place frequented by the largest number of minor employees, a list of all minors employed at the workplace (OH Rev. Code Sec. 4109.08(A); Sec. 4109.06(B)).
