Kentucky Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Under Section 337.050 and 337.285 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes Annotated, employers are required to provide mandatory overtime pay to employees who perform greater than 40 hours of work in one workweek. The workweek is defined as seven consecutive days, including weekends. Also included in this code section is the requirement that employees working for seven days in a row are entitled to overtime pay on the seventh day. Overtime pay is considered hourly wage and one-half.

Under Section 337.355 and 337.365 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes Annotated as well as Title 803, 1:065 Section 4 of the Kentucky Administrative Regulations, meal breaks are mandatory for all employees including nurses in the medical industry. The law requires that employers provide a reasonable off-duty period close to the middle of the shift. Employers are not required to allow for a mean break before the third hour of work or after the fifth hour of work. The law also mandates a paid ten-minute rest period for each 4-hour work period. Rest breaks are in addition to regularly scheduled meal breaks.
