“many nurses are forced to work “off the clock” and incur job-related expenses without reimbursement.”U.S Department of Labor
Registered nurses (RNs), licensed practice nurses (LPNs), nursing assistants, and nursing aides are critical to the U.S. healthcare industry, caring for patients in a variety of settings. For all the work they do and for the costs associated with the services they perform, they deserve to be paid honestly and fairly.
But unfortunately they are frequently the victims of wage theft.
Nevertheless, many nurses are forced to work “off the clock” and incur job-related expenses without reimbursement.
Nurses wage theft is occurred when
- Nurse’s work hours are rounded down
- Failing to reimburse nurses for time and mileage spent traveling to and from assigned work sites
- Failing to reimburse nurses for attendance at lectures, seminars, meetings, and training programs
- Nurses are paid at “pay per visit” rates for non-visit work
- Nurses are forced to work during mandatory meal breaks and rest periods without being paid
- Nurses are not paid for updating patient charts, medical records, and other administrative tasks
- Uniform and clothing expenses are not reimbursed
- Denying pay for time spent laundering, ironing, and maintaining uniforms and work-related clothing
By accident or by stated policy, these actions violate the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and deny nurses the compensation they are entitled to. If you are a Nurse you may have be owed thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars.
