Employers have to pay their employees for work performed so no, it is not allowed. The relevant statute is Ohio Revised Code section 4113.15. If wages remain unpaid for thirty days beyond the regularly scheduled payday, then the employer is liable for damages of up to $200. That's in addition to what they already owe in wages. You can sue for unpaid wages and damages in small claims court without a lawyer. If the employer fires you because you filed a lawsuit you probably then have a wrongful termination case against the employer.
