Mandatory Overtime

Does the state of Alabama have any restrictions for requiring an employee to work overtime? If he refuses are there any restrictions on a penalty of less hours scheduled for work for that person?

Alabama does not restrict employers from requiring overtime, as long as they pay nonexempt employees one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of forty in one workweek.

Employers may schedule employees as they see fit, including reducing the number of hours for one or more employees, as long as this is action is not taken on the basis of race, gender, national origin, age, or any other legally-protected status.

mandatory overtime

In Illinois can a full time RN be required to work mandatory overtime ?

Illinois employers may require overtime as long as they provide at least 24 consecutive hours of rest per calendar week, under the requirements of the One Day Rest in Seven Act. On a weekly basis, employers must post a list of those employees required to work on Sunday, and the designated day of rest for each. The Act does permit employers to apply for special authorization allowing the employment of individuals on their designated days of rest.

Employers must adhere to overtime regulations, paying nonexempt employees for any hours worked in excess of forty in one week. The overtime rate is one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay.
