Experienced New York Overtime Lawyers Help Nurses Recover Unpaid Overtime Wages from the Hospitals that Exploit Them


Strong legal guidance to protect nurses from being taken advantage of by their employers

Nurses are the backbone of any hospital. They are often the hardest working and most driven members of any medical team. Unfortunately, it has become an increasing trend for hospitals to try to meet their budgetary restraints by asking even more out of their most valued employees. Our team of attorneys at Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC takes on the hospitals that abuse their relationships with their nurses by making them work unpaid overtime. We get results so you receive the full compensation you deserve.

Ways that your hospital may be violating federal law by requiring you to work unpaid overtime

Nurses are known for being compassionate and caring people by nature. They build relationships with their patients and do not think twice about stepping up and working extra to attend to patients’ needs. Just because nurses are not just in it for the money does not mean that they should be fully compensated for all of their hard work. A New York unpaid wage and overtime attorney can help you get the payment you deserve for all of the time that you put in, plus additional damages for the wages owed. Some of the most common ways that New York hospitals nurses put in overtime that goes uncompensated include:

  • Working deal meal breaks

  • Working before or after a scheduled shift without getting credit

  • Hours worked on call

  • Attending meetings

  • Attending trainings

  • Working at related facilities

Which nurses are non-exempt from receiving overtime pay benefits?

There are some classifications of nurses that are ineligible for receiving mandatory overtime pay for working more than 40 hours in a work week. Eligibility for overtime pay is based on what type of nurse you are. If you are a registered nurse (RN), it depends on your pay structure, the amount you earn and whether you are registered with the state. Currently, RNs that earn a salary or more $455 per week and are registered with a state examining board are employees that are exempt from receiving overtime pay. Almost all licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and nursing home nurses are entitled to overtime pay for working more than 40 hours in a work week. We have New York overtime pay lawyers for nurses and healthcare professionals that focus on getting nurses the compensation they deserve for all of the long hard hours that they spend on the job.
