My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Georgia
1. Are hospital employees entitled to Overtime pay? The group receives "hush hush" Comp time. HOWEVER, due to recent understaffing, many will not be eligible to take regular vacation, much less Comp time …& it doesn't roll over to the next year (which would further compound the problem with lack of staffing/availability to take time off).
2. "Certain" employees have gone to 8 hour shifts. Comp time is MOST accumulated on 10 & 12 hour shifts. Almost half of the group has now gone to 8 hour shifts …NONE of which include ANY women! Where is the equal opportunity there? The 10 & 12 hour shifts used to be rotated throughout the entire group. 8 hour shifts are obviously most desired …since we are not TRULY compensated for OT.
3. We were recently "given" executive benefits …although we are NOT executives, NOR did we sign anything accepting this. Basically, the ONLY thing we are "given" was more life insurance for "free," & we are now NOT able to roll over PTO (except into ETO). Does this make us "EXEMPT" from OT?
