Will the new overtime laws affect travel nurses?

If you are not covered by other rules, contracts or state laws then the answer is yes. According to the U.S. Department of Labor nurses could qualify as being exempt from being paid overtime. According to a fact sheet put out by the Department of Labor nurses meet the test to be exempted from overtime. In States with seperate ovetime laws or where there are strong union presences the new rules may be slow to take hold. I quess if that doesn't chap your hide not much will :)
