Ohio Legislature Passes Bill Exempting Overtime Pay for Certain Actions
It passed a Senate concurrence vote by a party-line 25-8 vote
Legislation to exempt employers from paying overtime to workers for commuting and checking messages off-hours is headed to Gov. Mike DeWine after clearing a final Ohio Senate vote Wednesday.
Senate Bill 47 passed a Senate concurrence vote by a party-line 25-8 vote, with Republicans voting in favor and Democrats against the measure.
The bill, a priority for the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, allows employers to not have to pay overtime to employees for time spent traveling to and from work, and for "activities requiring insubstantial or insignificant periods of time beyond the employee's scheduled working hours."
