I have a co-worker who is in her 60's who claimed she is a workaholic. She works a lot of hours, 12 hours or more each shift and everyday. She hardly get a day off except when she was on vacation. Even when she was on vacation, she could not wait to go back to work. There was an occasion she was given a day off twice a month and she was not happy about it. She wants to work instead of getting a day off. It seems our manager is catering to her because she helps a lot with the shifts especially on the weekends. Like I said she works everyday and every weekends. I think the reason they give what she wants because they want to keep her and make her happy and she helps fill-in the shifts especially weekends. They also think she is an outstanding nurse and the unit can't function the same without her.Recently, our employer have been cutting down our hours and sending nurses home when we get low census or cut down the budget. They would cut down nurses from 3 to 2 nurses in each unit. My concern is, this workaholic nurse does not get to send home and she refused. She get paid a lot of overtime. I addressed this issue to HR because I think this is totally wrong. I'm not sure if they are aware of this that she works everyday and not given a day off. Is this legal? It would show on our master schedule that she works 80 hours per pay period. I could prove to HR that she works more than that and no off by checking on her payroll. I would appreciate your input.
