How to View Wage Rate Data
The Ohio Wage and Hour web site is connected to a database which has the latest wage rate information that the Bureau currently has calculated. Access to the internet is, of course, required to obtain the wage rate information in this manner. The following procedure will help in finding the web site on the internet:
1) Establish a connection to the internet
2) Open the following location,
and choose "Wage and Hour" from the pull down list on this site. If you are already on the Wage and Hour home page or have previously bookmarked it, then just go to step 3.
3) To gain entry into the database which contains the wage rates click on the following icon which is on the home page.
4) The system will then request that the user submit three basic bits of information in order to gain access to the data. These bits of information include; organization’s name (which could be either company name or public authority name), project name, and e-mail address. When the system requests this information the prompt should look like this;
5) Follow the directions in Step 1 on the example. Use the arrow button on the right to find the correct organizational name. If it is not on the list, simply enter it on the next line per the instructions and click the OK button labeled “Step 2".
6) A new prompt box will appear that looks like this;
7) Follow the directions as described in Step 2 of the example. Use the arrow on the right side of the “Existing Project Name” line to find the appropriate project. If it does not exist, please enter it in the second line entitled, “New Project Name”, just as the directions point out. Enter “Prevailing Wage Coordinator Name” and e-mail address. The e-mail address information is being collected so that we may contact all users by e-mail to notify them of wage rate changes. The system has been designed so that when a change is made, notification of the specific changes by classification and county will be automatically sent to all e-mail addresses in our database. When finished entering the correct information, click on the ok button entitled,”Step 3". See graphic example below.
8) When the Step 3 button is pressed, another prompt box appears that lists all the information that has just been entered so that it may be reviewed prior to final submission. Please verify the information then click the “I Agree” button to submit. If the information is not correct, then click the “Start Over” button. See the example below.
9) By clicking the “I Agree” button the information will be transmitted to the Wage and Hour server. Access will be granted for a period of 24 hours. The next screen that pops up will be a search engine
that assists one in narrowing down the 39,000 plus documents. It looks like the following;
10) By using the drop down arrows to the right of each line, one can select which wage rates to call up. By leaving select in the line, all the wage rates for that particular category will be called up. When each category has the appropriate selection, then the “View wage rates” button can be clicked.
It will produce a pop up chart that lists the selections chosen and which looks like this;
11) Unlike the above example, most charts will have more than one row of clickable items. Clicking on any of the underlined items in the chart will bring the wage rates up for that item. This will be in the format of a form, which is printable. The wage rate form will look like the example below.
12) To escape from the form when done viewing or printing, simply click the browser’s “back” button to return to the previous screen. Another item in the chart (if there is more than one) may then be chosen and viewed.
13) If you return to the site within 24 hours and click on the “View Wage Rates” icon, the system will skip the log on procedure and immediately present the selection view with the classification, county, or union selection lines as shown in items numbered 10 and 11. If you return after a 24 hour period, you will be required to repeat the log on procedure as described in steps 1 through 12.
