Grove City, OH asked in Employment Law for Ohio

Q: I am not being paid the right hourly rate and have told my manager/gm and nothing seems to being done about it?

I work as a dishwasher at a local restaurant and my hourly pay for dishwashing is $10 an hour. I have trained to be a cook and am now working cooking shifts. The hourly rate for a cook is 13 dollars an hour. I trained for 2 days being a cook for $10; aside from that I have had 4 cooking shifts where I am still being paid $10 an hour. I have told my manager and nothing has been done to correct this.

A: Keep requesting that they make the change. There is no law that requires them to pay you a certain amount based on the job. They are only required to pay you minimum wage.
