I'm wondering how your facility handles extra shifts. A few weeks ago, my unit was full to capacity so many people were signing up for overtime. Our facility is supposed to pay time and a half plus a bonus of $10 an hour for extra shifts people take when we are this busy (which we call premium pay)
I signed up for an extra shift on the schedule, wrote down "please call for premium pay shift." When the night came, they called me and said they didn't expect to need me, but I would be put on call just in case. They ended up calling me in at 2:30am. I just received my paycheck and saw that I only got time and a half (or regular call-in pay) for those hours. No $10 an hour bonus. Does this seem right to you? I was expecting to be paid premium pay for any hours I worked. After all, I signed up for premium pay and not just an extra call shift. It's not the biggest deal, since it would only be about $50 extra before taxes, but it rubbed me the wrong way. I emailed my manager to explain this, but she hasn't gotten back to me yet. So I'm curious, how do you guys get paid for extra shifts or call-in shifts? Thanks!
