Minnesota Overtime and Meal & Rest Break Laws for Nurses

Under Section 177.25 of the Minnesota Statutes Annotated, employers are required to provide mandatory overtime pay for employees working longer than 48 hours in one workweek. A workweek is defined as seven consecutive days including weekends. Employers are not required to provide overtime pay if an employee works longer than eight hours in one workday as long as the workweek does not exceed 40 hours. Traditionally, the workweek begins on Monday but employers are free to begin the workweek on any day as long as the defined week stays consistent. Employers may not manipulate workweeks to avoid paying overtime to employees.

Under Sections 177.253, 177.254 and 181.939 of the Minnesota Statutes Annotated, employers must provide “sufficient” time for a meal break for any employee working eight consecutive hours or more. There is no requirement under state or federal law that the meal break is paid. In addition, employers must provide an “adequate” rest period for all employees within each consecutive four hours of work. Employees must utilize the nearest most convenient restroom.
