Due to the unique nature of working conditions in hospitals, nurses and other hospital personnel are more susceptible to overtime law violations than many other workers.
Various factors of hospital work and management can significantly increase the likelihood that employees will perform work for which they are not compensated. However, hospitals are still under legal obligation to provide compensation for this work.
If you are a nurse or other type of hospital staff member who believes that you may have been paid less than what you are fully entitled to receive for your work, you may be eligible to file a claim for the harm this has caused you and the wages you deserve.
TYPES OF WORK REQUIRING OVERTIME PAY
Nurses and other hospital personnel may be subject to a range of different overtime law violations, including the following:
- Performing work activities during lunch breaks
- Performing work activities before and after shifts end
- Misclassification of nurses and other hospital personnel as administrative workers exempt from overtime pay
Although many nurses and hospital employees sign agreements with their employers that put in place special hours regulations, they are still entitled to overtime pay in most situations.
