Are You Afraid of the Dark? How an Ohio Haunted Attraction Operator is robbing workers, including minors, of their earned wages.

While Halloween and the scary attractions associated with it may be months away, something sinister has been going on at the Ohio Gorematory. Workers are claiming that they were never paid the wages they earned during the 2019 and previous seasons. Instead, Ohio Gorematory is accused of refusing to pay wages to workers at their Ohio haunted attraction, telling workers that unless a certain number of shifts were worked, workers were owed nothing- in blatant violation of both State of Ohio and Federal Law. Even more disturbing than the gory scenes within the Ohio Gorematory, is the fact that many of these workers were minors- teenagers from local schools looking for a way to earn some money with friends. At least one minor worker is claiming to have worked seventeen (17) nights and received no pay, a violation that was likely widespread throughout the operation of the Ohio Gorematory, is in direct violation of her agreement, and is in violation of Ohio Child Labor Laws. Attorneys at Barkan Meizlish, LLP have filed a class action lawsuit against Ohio Gorematory, LLC in an effort to recover the stolen wages for minors and other workers alike.

What is Wage Theft?

Any time an employer improperly pays their employees or fails to pay their employees, it is considered wage theft. There is a broad number of ways that an employer can commit wage theft, ranging from not paying an employee on time, withholding overtime pay, or expecting employers to work off the clock. These are just some of the most common instances of wage theft. There are federal and state protections in place for employees to avoid this kind of mistreatment from their employers, namely the Fair Labor Standards Act and minimum wage laws.

What is the Fair Labor Standards Act?

The Fair Labor Standards Act, or FLSA as it’s commonly referred to, sets out employment laws on a federal level. This act contains laws pertaining to employment law, such as how to calculate overtime pay and regulations regarding record keeping. The FLSA also sets out guidelines for exemptions based on a variety of factors, such as job title, pay rate, and duration of a position. When employers, such as Ohio Gorematory, violate the FLSA, employees should take action to regain their rightfully earned pay.

What is the Minimum Wage in my State?

Every state has a different minimum wage. Federal minimum wage is currently $7.25 an hour. To check your state’s minimum pay rate, you can consult this map.
