Nursing Home Employees Overtime Pay Laws & Nursing Home Employees Overtime Lawsuits

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay covered employees overtime wages at a rate of time-and-one-half for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.  The FLSA protects all Nursing Home Employees whose primary duties are not managerial, administrative, or professional in nature.  Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.  Nursing Home Employee Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit

Employers in the Nursing Home industry often violate the FLSA by failing to pay Nursing Home Employees the required overtime pay.  In calculating the number of hours worked, the employer must consider all required work performed in all facilities and departments, both before and after a shift, including staff meetings and required paid training.  Common violations include failing to pay for work performed before and after the scheduled shift, during scheduled meal breaks, and during staff meetings and training.  When calculating overtime pay, employers also often fail to combine the hours of work performed in different departments or facilities as well as time spent on call.

If you are a Nursing Home Employee who worked more than 40 hours a week but did not receive overtime pay, you may be entitled to file a Nursing Home Employee overtime pay lawsuit.  These lawsuits are often filed by an entire group of Nursing Home Employees against an employer who violates the FLSA.  Your best option is to contact an experienced attorney who can advise you of your rights under the FLSA and state laws.  There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits, so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.  If you wait, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay.
