As of January 1, 2021, the minimum wage for non-tipped employees in Ohio will rise from $8.70 to $8.80 per hour, a 10-cent increase. Any tipped employees will have their base pay go from $4.35 to $4.40 an hour.

Ohio businesses with gross receipts of less than $323,000 in 2020, and for those workers under the age of 16, the minimum wage remains $7.25, which is the federal minimum wage. 

Remember employers, you are required to post the minimum wage and overtime information in a space that is easily visible, such as an employee break room, your HR office that is accessible to employees, or another common space.
