The 15 Minute Issue is Back!

A recent State Auditor Report addressed the fact that WSH “cooks the books” with regard to attendance records to indicate that employees that work 7.75 hours ( 7 hours and 45 minutes) are recorded as having worked eight hours, even though they start to accrue overtime after 7.75 hours as overtime eligible employees.  Are you aware that working for fifteen minutes less per day than RN’s adds up to over eight less work days per year in time worked for those employees?  RN overtime starts to accrue only after 8 real hours, not 7.75 hours (off the books).  I am happy that this fraud is being exposed in the media.  Check out the media story at KUOW.ORG and listen to the report!
