My employer has missed pay day multiple times and continues to pay myself and a coworker on pay day. what can i do to force him to begin paying us on payday? or get my money sooner? or do i have a case against him to sue him for the money he owes me or sue him for not paying me on time? Im just wondering what i can do at this point
In many states, they have a state department of labor or something equivalent. I would check to see if Ohio has one since in many cases this department handles those types of claims. They might be helpful in addressing the issue.

Check the Ohio regs; in Nevada, where I practice, employers are required to make payment within a reasonable time. I assume Ohio is similar. Retain an attorney to make demand on your employer and/or file a claim.
