What is the overtime rate of pay for a nurse?

Typically, the overtime rate of pay for a nurse is 1.5 times the hourly rate paid unless otherwise exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The failure of the employer to pay required overtime pay can give rise to a nurse overtime pay lawsuit. If you or someone you know has been denied overtime pay, you should contact the best possible attorney to represent you in your case.

When an employer determines the appropriate amount of pay for hours worked, the employer must consider all required work performed both before and after a shift, any scheduled meal breaks, staff meetings, and required paid training.  Training outside of the workplace, such as continuing medical education, typically does not qualify as time worked for the employer. Non-exempt employees must be paid for all hours worked, including work performed before or after shifts, during scheduled meal breaks, meetings, and paid training. Hours worked include hours worked at all facilities and departments or on-call, and the regular rate should include shift differential, bonuses or on-call fees.
