Exempt Employees

I work for a hospital and we have a few of our department managers that are exempt who have been paid for their regular 40 hour work week and also have had the opportunity to earn extra money by working on call in their department. When they are on call they receive call pay and when they are called in they receive regular wages, above and beyond the 40 hours that they have been paid for. Does this practice ruin their exempt status?

  • When I worked for a hospital, we had nurse managers or clinical managers who would PRN on the weekends as staff nurses on floors other than their own. They were allowed to work on an hourly basis in this capacity. If what you are saying is they come in on the weekends and perform the same type (management) duties, I would say you would be damaging their exempt status.
