Is the employer required to pay overtime pay? : LUSENET : Law Of The Workplace : One Thread

I have a friend that is a RN nurse a local hospital here in San Diego, CA. The company, her employer, has recently decided not to pay overtime to anyone. If you sign out past your regular schedule they make you sign a waiver deny pay for your extra work.

Is this possible? Doesn't this break basic employment laws?

They are always understaffed, and now they are saying we will not pay for overtime. ? Please give me some direction.

Pretty basic law: can't sign away right to wages.

See this law:

-- Gerald P. Cunningham (, September 28, 2003.

it is against the law for them not to pay you for your overtime that you worked, unless you did not work over your forty hour work week.
