Concerned mother asks about dangers of nurse’s shift work – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889

As you can probably imagine, there are many state and federal laws that regulate employment issues, such as hours worked, overtime pay, days off after specified hours worked, breaks during work and equal pay for equal work. However, there is no specific prohibition, either state or federal, that prohibits workers, including healthcare workers, from working 12-hour shifts.
