Alaska Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Under section 23.10.060 of the Alaska statutes, nurses are to be compensated with one and one-half pay for hours worked beyond eight per day. The same holds true for nurses working beyond the typically 40-hour work week. This provision is slightly more protective than the FLSA which does not necessarily compensate time and one-half for work days longer than eight hours provided the entire workweek does not surpass 40 hours.

Alaska does not provide special statutory coverage for nurses with regard to rest and meal breaks. Breaks for Alaska nurses are covered by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which does not require an employer to compensate a nurse for meal time surpassing 30 minutes. Short 5- or 20-minute breaks are not required but if the employer offers them he or she must include the break within compensable work time and likely will not be able to dock the nurse’s pay for the short break.
