    In California, the Labor Code states that employees that work in excess of 8 hours a day, AND 40 hours in any workweek, will be compensated at an overtime rate.
    The exceptions are: administrative or professional employees, those employees covered under a collective bargaining contract, Registered Nurses, Licensed Physicians and Surgeons, and those employees and employers who have adopted a regularly scheduled alternative workweek. In the case of the regularly scheduled alternative workweek, an employee cannot work more than 10 hours a day with a 40 hour workweek, without being compensated at an overtime rate.

  • Answer: Overtime rate is 1.5. Overtime pay is standard pay (per hour) x number of overtime hours x 1.5. Overtime pay rate is then the standard pay (hourly wage) x 1.5.

    Example: If an employee has an 8-hour working period per day, with standard pay is $10.00 per hour, and 2 hours of overtime (for a total of 10 hours in a single day), then the overtime pay calculates to $30.00. The overtime pay is in addition to standard pay of $80.00 for the first eight (8) hours worked for that day, yielding a pre-tax wage total of $110.00 for the day.
  • Answer: HOSPITAL SALARY AND RETIREMENT THERE REALLY ARE TOO MANY variables to make an accurate, blanket, "one answer fits all". It depends on how long they have worked there, their duties (floor nurse vs floor nursing supervisor), and the size of the hospital. Also the state in which they work also makes a difference.. hospitals in the south, like N. Carolina, S. Carolina, Georgia, Florida and others, make less per hour than hospitals in the northeast, such as Connecticut, Massachucetts, New York etc...Also, it depends on the nurses qualifications. Many nurses further their education past R.N., and have higher college degrees than others. And I think that skilled nurses that work in say, the trauma unit make more than a regular unit nurse. Also, skilled psychiatric nurses also make a little bit more per hour, as do nurses that work in hospitals that have a good UNION. When nurses reach retirement, their retirement pay in government, unionized hospitals, are based on how many years they have worked, as well as how many HOURS they have worked. Someone that does a lot of overtime, have bigger retirement packages. <<<ADR>>>
