Is overtime putting a strain on you and your patients? -For many other occupations where public safety is at risk, laws restrict the number of hours and amount of overtime employees can be required to work. But not so in health care--until recently. SEIU members are mobilizing in support of state laws that would prohibit mandatory overtime for hospital and other health care employees. State laws restricting mandatory overtime in health care have already been passed in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington and are under consideration in 17 other states. Meanwhile, federal legislation is under consideration to prevent excessive hours for interns and residents in the nation's hospitals.
