Ohio minimum wage for small employers (less than $250,000)

Emploeyrs grossing less than $250K a year are covered by the new Ohio minimum wage law. However, you can pay the federal minimum wage (now $5.15 an hour but expected to increase) instead of the Ohio minimum wage (now $6.85 but adjusted for inflation). You should be very careful before you rely on an exemption from the minimum wage that is contained in a state law, because the new minimum wage is required by Ohio's Constitution and a state law cannot override the Constitution.
