Ohio Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Under the Ohio Revised Code Annotated section 4111.01 and 4111.03, employers must provide mandatory overtime pay for employees working in excess of 40 hours in one week. Overtime pay is calculated as one and one-half times the amount of the employee’s regular pay. These employment provisions apply only to employers who gross an amount greater than $150,000 per year. State and federal law defines the workweek as seven consecutive days and typically begins on a Monday. Employers are not required to compensate an employee with overtime pay in the event a particular work day exceeds eight hours as long as the entire workweek does not exceed the 40-hour maximum.

Ohio has not enacted specific legislation with respect to meal and rest breaks for employees. If a state labor code does not provide a provision with respect to a labor or employment issue, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) serves as a statutory gap-filler. With respect to meal and rest breaks, the FLSA does not mandate that an employer must provide such breaks unless the employer and employee agree otherwise in the employment contract. Employers are within their legal rights to require employees to eat while on duty if the nature of the job so requires.
