Q: Is it legal to work 12 hours 3 day shift and not get paid overtime in california at an Urgent Care?
A: The legality of this arrangement depends on whether or not a valid alternative workweek schedule agreement was executed. Please give me a call or email me (213-381-6557; email@example.com) if you would like to discuss the matter further.
All the best,
A: Employers may be permitted to implement an alternative workweek schedule under certain limited conditions. An alternative workweek permits employers to regularly schedule participating employees to work more than eight, but generally less than ten, hours in one workday without the requirement of overtime pay. A common example of an alternative workweek is where an employee works 10-hour shifts, four days per week. Depending what your duties are at urgent care may also play a role.
