Under federal law, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are often entitled to extra overtime pay during any week they work over 40 hours. This can include time spent on driving, charting, taking samples to the lab, and many other activities. Sometimes employers only pay some of the overtime that is owed. If you are an LPN who is not getting time-and-a-half for every hour over 40 you spend on behalf of your patients or employer, you may have a claim. Click here for more information.
