Colorado Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Under Title 7 of the Colorado Code Regulations (Section 1103-1(4)), employers are required to pay time and one-half to any nurse who works longer than 12 hours in a given day. This code section provides greater protections than the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which does not offer time and one-half for workdays spanning longer than eight hours as long as the workweek in total does not exceed 40 hours. The 40-hour workweek overtime requirement adopted by the FLSA also appears in the Colorado Code Regulations and applies to all employees in the medical industry.

Under Title 7, Section 1103-1(7)-(8), which applies to all employees of the medical industry, nurses are entitled to a 30-minute unpaid break after five hours of work. The Code also permits on-duty paid meal breaks if the nature of the work requires the nurse to work during his or her mealtime. Nurses are also guaranteed paid 10-minute rest periods for each four-hour period of work if practical. This differs from federal standards which do not require employers to provide paid breaks or meal times to any worker.
