  • rescheduled hours = overtime ?

    State is NE, I work a 12 hr / 2 wk rotating shift (nights). 36hrs one week, 48 the next. I took a "snow day" the other day, cba says they may require us to make up the hours. I was informed this morning that we may make up the hours next week (48 hr week),or have the day count against our attendance policy, but that it would be paid as straight time, because "it would have been straight time if the hours were worked when scheduled". I understand their "logic", but believe that the fed law requires OT over 40 in any work week, regardless of the reason the hours fall within that of us is using flawed logic.....someone please tell me it's not me this time !!!

    Duplicate post. Everyone here is a volunteer who does this on their own time and around their job, and not everyone who looks at your post is going to know the answer right of the top of their head. Sometimes it takes more than an hour and a half for someone to knows the answer, or has had time to research the answer, to get back to you. Have patience, please.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
