    go to the ANA site. This law does not affect nurses or police or some other jobs.

    It shouldn't have any effect on nurses. I recently saw an article that very clearly explained how nurses do not fall into the category of employees that will be affected. I'll post it if I can find it.

    According to the US Dept. of Labor, Nurses, as professionals do not have to be paid time and a half. It was my understanding, unless there are state regulations that over-ride this law (like California's), that it is at the companies "discression" to pay time and a half under certain guidelines. Here is the Labor Board's site to the link:

    This pertains to those professionals who are salaried.
