One of our wage and hour attorneys recently was asked by a third shift employee about the legal requirements to pay night shift employees a higher wage. Unfortunately, although many employers chose to pay higher wages through a “shift differential” to second or third shift employees in order to attract workers for those shifts, the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), nor the Ohio counterpart, require employers to pay more to employees that work those shifts. Instead, the FLSA simply sets one minimum wage that applies to all workers (except tipped employees).
