  • Overtime for Paramedics North Carolina North Dakota Ohio

    Since I am a County Employee, I have been told the State Labor Laws do not effect me, but I fall under the Federal umbrella.
    My department "requires" all EMS full time employees to join and belong to a volunteer fire department. The volunteer departments have rules we have to follow, like anywhere from 36 to 80 hours a year in time. I am not paid for this time. My question is can my employer require me to volunteer?

    My second question is: How many shifts can I work in a row? Can I work 2 or 3 24 hour shifts in a row? We are paid overtime on any hours over 40 in a week.

    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.
