Kansas Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Under Section 44-1204 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, employers must pay overtime for employees working longer than 46 hours in one workweek. Overtime pay is calculated by adding the hourly wage and one-half of the hourly wage together to create a new hourly wage- known as time and one-half. Under this code section, which is akin to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, a workweek is defined as seven consecutive days including weekends. Any employment or labor provisions not covered under this code section are covered by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Under Section 49-30-3(b)(2)(A) of the Kansas Administrative Regulations, employers are not required to provide meal breaks to employees. However, if the employer chooses to provide a meal or rest break that is less than 30 minutes, the break must be paid and part of the hourly calculation of work time. These regulations apply to any employee not covered under the FLSA.
