Michigan Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Under Section 40-8.382 and 408.384(a) of the Michigan Compiled Laws, employers are required to provide mandatory overtime pay to employees working in excess of 40 hours per workweek. State and federal laws define a workweek as seven consecutive days including weekends. Mandatory overtime pay is calculated as hourly pay plus one-half, otherwise known as time and one-half. Michigan mandatory overtime laws do not apply to sole proprietorships or any employee subject to state minimum wage laws.

Michigan has not enacted specific legislation with respect to mandatory meal and rest breaks. Therefore, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) applies to fill in any gaps. Unfortunately, the FLSA does not require employers to provide meal or rest breaks for employees and may even require an employee to eat while on duty if necessary. If an employer chooses to provide rest breaks of less than 20 minutes, those breaks must be paid. There is no requirement that a meal break is paid if an employer opts to provide such breaks for his employees.
