  1. Brian Lussier says:

    I am currently a full-time (36 hours/week) nurse employed in a Denver, CO hospital. I applied for an additional Per Diem position within the hospital, but was not hired because there were not funds to pay overtime. I offered to waive the overtime, so that I may be hired for this position. H.R. stated that this was not possible. Under current federal law, am I able to waive overtime for a separate position?
    Thank you!
