hello all! for those nurses who work in california or anywhere where you are paid over time after 8 hours. could you tell me what is the name of that law? and why are county hospitals not paying it to their employees, how is it they can get away with it?
i recently took a perdiem position at a county facility assuming that when you work 12 hours you get paid 4 ot. when my manager sat down with me she did not state that she only stated that i would receive the amount of shift differential, working weekends. i assume it was given i would be getting paid 4 hours ot! i received my paycheck stub and to my dismay i did not see it there. i questioned her about it and she stated that i was hired to contract for 12 hours and i was told already about not getting paid ot. for the life of me why would i still be working there or anyone for that matter! on top of that she calls on my voice mail telling me that i have to work 6 days a month when my paper stated for my status i work 32 hours 16 weekends she told me i could just pull 3 12's instead but 3 more? i was very perturbed because i felt i was being misled. her attitude was more or less tough and deal with it! being the professional that i am left and started typing my resignation letter. some of these hospitals can't figure out why nurses don't stick around!

In the state of California it used to be that if you didn't work excess of 80 hours you wouldn't receive overtime. So that means you can work 16 or even 20 hours and no OT. To me that is crazy.
Pebbles obviously you haven't worked in California or any state that it is mandated law that anything over 8 hours is overtime. It is not ridiculous I will never work straight time. And my topic applied to states that have the overtime after 8 hours. So anyone like yourself wouldn't have a clue! I am not asking what the overtime in each state. I said what is the law for overtime after 8 hours called and has anyone in the STATE who has overtime after 8 experience problems! I am entitled what the law states in that state. Your state doesn't have it so you don't get it! In the future instead dishing out your player hating attitude why don't you read what it was asking I wasn't asking for your comments, when you especially don't get overtime after 8 hours. Now I understand why nursing is the way it is. Player hating attitudes!!!!!!!!!!!!
