Ensuring Overtime Compliance in Healthcare with Celayix

In the fast-paced world of healthcare, managing employee schedules while ensuring compliance with labor laws can be challenging. Overtime violations are a common issue, with factors like misclassification, failure to pay overtime correctly, and inadequate tracking of hours worked contributing to the problem.

The Challenge of Overtime Compliance in Healthcare

According to a report, in 2021, over 236,000 healthcare workers in the U.S. averaged 8 hours per week of paid overtime and 5.8 hours per week of unpaid overtime. The number of workers clocking overtime has increased, highlighting the importance of proper scheduling and overtime management.

Common Challenges in Overtime Compliance

One key challenge is misclassifying employees as exempt, which leads to violations of overtime rules. Failure to pay overtime under the 8 and 80 system, a lack of agreement or understanding for the 8 and 80 system, and failure to total all hours worked for overtime calculations are also common issues.

How Celayix Helps

Celayix’s scheduling software offers a comprehensive solution to these challenges. With AI and Machine Learning features, Celayix can analyze past work schedules to recommend the best-fit employees for new schedules.

The Scheduling Rules Engine ensures compliance with specific business rules, including overtime and union rules. The Find Replacement tool makes handling shift drops, no-shows, and other emergencies easy by providing a list of available and qualified replacements.

Streamlining the Scheduling Process

Shift Templates, Bulk Updates, and Assign, and instant communication with caregivers streamline the scheduling process, reducing the risk of errors. Moreover, Celayix’s Electronic Visit Verification Support helps track employee hours and update patient data, ensuring compliance with regulations.
