I singed up for an OT shift on Dec 31. I was not notified that I got the shift until LESS THAN 24 HOURS prior to the shift. My supervisor then sent me an email in which she told me that I needed to be ready and able to work with no conflicts because I had to chase her down, literally, after multiple emials, to see if was confirmed because if so I had an appointment to cancel. Is this grievable? It is retaliation because I could not come into work yesterday 01042016 because I was iced in.
I'm looking to change my schedule from five 8-hour days to four 9-10 hour days. Is it 36 hours I need a week to stay at full-time with full benefits? Also, how do I switch from accumulating overtime on a daily basis to a weekly basis? Thanks for your help!
who gets to work an extra huc shift? huc or tech relief?
When does the department have to let full time workers known if their bid for overtime has been accepted. In my department, although I had signed up several weeks (3) prior to the days of OT for me, I was still not told if I got the shifts on the Friday before the Wed and thurs shifts. I thought shifts had to be confirmed a standard time in advance (3 weeks???). I get that the dept doesn't want to pay OT, but what are the parameters of the notificiation process?
My department has monthly after work meetings that can run to 7:00 p.m. This of course is considered overtime. Do I have the right to decline going to these meetings? thank you
If I work regularly scheduled 10 hour shift, then volunteer to come back a few hours (4.5) and fill in for a sick call for an additional 8 hours of work, does that count as overtime?
I believe a recent pay report may have a miscalculation for overtime. I worked a 12 hour shift (= 4 hours OT for that day, putting me at 36.4 hours for the week). I then finished the week with an 8 hour shift giving me 44.4 hours for the week. My pay report only had 1.2 hours listed as overtime.
re: article 9 OT and premium pay - if we are called back to work are we required to stay the full two hours or can we leave after the urgent issue is resolved?
when and is overtime mandatory?
Is there a way to verify the plicy on overtime on-call? If we have a rush case on a Sunday and are called in to work we clock in with automatic two hour paid. My supervisor says this means we stay for the entire two hours even if the rush case is completed. Why don't we just clock in normal then?
If a have 8 hours sick time in a week of 40 hours job, I work Monday to Friday, and I work 8 hours on Saturday , are this 8 hours overtime or must be pay as a regular time?
Can overtime be refused?
I work an alternate schedule. Mon Tues Wed 6pm to 630am (12.5 hours) and four hours on Friday. I just found out that others in my department get paid a no lunch. I have to work through lunch and miss my breaks. I'm not allowed to put in a no lunch. I spoke to Marsha at the Bureau of Labor and Industry today and she told my that I may be eligible to recover up to six years of back pay. Can you help me so that I can get paid OT for missing lunch and breaks and possibly recover back pay? Thx
I signed an overtime waiver, and I want to take it back, because I didn't really understand the ramifications. How can I do that?
When I work overtime my department requires me to get approval from our director in order to have my overtime work credited as comp time. Can they do that?
