    overtime pay Maryland

    I am a registered nurse. I work private duty for an elderly client. I have been employed for 4 years working 60 hours a week. The POA refuses to pay overtime. Am I entitled to overtime pay? I was hired privately and do not work for an agency.

    There is also nothing in state law that would contradict this.

    Past that, even if FLSA is applicable in some general sense, there are some potential specific exceptions for both RNs and caregivers.

    POA = Power of Attorney?

    The "employer" is not required to pay overtime by federal law. The Fair Labor Standards Act applies to businesses with revenue of $500K or more and dealing in interstate commerce. If it applies to an individual contractiing personal services, I would be surprised.

    You and the other party can negotiate the terms under which you will work and be paid, but don't look to FLSA to bolster your position.
