The Ohio Supreme Court agreed to hear  an appeal of the Second District’s decision in  Haight v. Cheap Escape Co., 2014-Ohio-2447. This case held that by adopting the language of Article II, Section 34a of the Ohio Constitution, Ohio voters intended to abolish the minimum wage exemptions contained in the federal Fair Labor Standards Act for purposes of the Ohio minimum wage.  Under the Haight decision, Ohio employers must pay the minimum wage to  outside sales people and others who are exempt from the federal minimum wage laws.
