Nurses are Entitled to Overtime and often to Lunch and Rest Breaks

Nursing makes up the nation’s largest healthcare occupation as nearly 2.6 million in the healthcare industry with approximately 60% of nurses employed in hospitals and 21% identify as members of nurse’s union. When hospitals around the country try to maximize profits nurses are often improperly paid to help the bottom line.

At a minimum federal law requires that nurses who work longer than 40 hours in one workweek get paid overtime calculated at one and one-half times the nurse’s regular pay rate. Several states have enacted specific statutes with regard to overtime and breaks.

This website seeks to help nurses understand their rights and find legal representation to help get compensation for unpaid overtime and missed lunch breaks and rest breaks. Our firm partners with firms around the country to make sure that meritorious cases are prosecuted properly in nearly every state.
