Outside Salespeople are Still Exempt from Minimum Wage Under Ohio Law


On March 17, 2016, the Ohio Supreme Court held that Ohio’s minimum wage law, which exempts outside salespeople from the definition of “employee,” does not conflict with a 2006 voter-approved amendment to the Ohio Constitution and, therefore, remains good law. This decision is favorable to Ohio employers who can continue to exempt their outside salespeople from minimum wage under both Ohio and federal law.
