Outside sales exemption is constitutional 4/19/16

By L. Michael Zinser, The Zinser Law Firm

Ohio Supreme Court upholds a minimum wage amendment in the Ohio Constitution that states, in pertinent part, that "employer," "employee," "person" and "independent contractor" all have the same meanings as they do under the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

While not specifically discussing this case, federal law also excludes from the Wage and Hour Law individuals who deliver newspapers to the consumer. The same exclusion should also apply under Ohio law.
