You always should consult with an attorney to review your individual situation fully, but FMLA does not require payment of any certain wage for an interim employee substituting for an employee electing FMLA leave. Employers should always review application of Ohio minimum wage and the Fair Labor Standards Act when considering an employee's compensation.
