Often times the overtime rate of pay for a physician assistant (PA) is 1.5 times the hourly rate of pay. If your employer is denying you overtime pay or has not paid you overtime wages in the past, you should seriously consider filing an unpaid overtime lawsuit. These lawsuits can provide you with significant compensation for your unpaid wages and often include payment of penalties, liquidated damages, interest, and attorney’s fees. Every day that you wait to speak with an overtime pay lawyer may be costing you significant money.
In order to calculate the number of hours worked overtime, the employer must consider all required work performed both before and after a shift, any scheduled meal breaks, staff meetings, and required paid training. Additionally, hours worked overtime also include hours worked at all facilities and departments or on-call, and the regular rate should include shift differential, bonuses or on-call fees.
