Any healthcare worker can tell you the truth about mandatory overtime: it is unsafe for their patients, and unsafe for themselves. We need to ensure that our health care workers are able to do their job to the best of their ability, which means keeping them healthy, and not forcing them to work grueling, extended shifts above the hard work they do every day.
JUSTICE FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS
Take Action to Support Ban on Mandatory Overtime for healthcare Workers. Please contact Vermont House General Affairs members to tell to support H.268 - ban on mandatory overtime.
H.268/S.80 bans mandatory overtime, except in emergency situations, and recognizes the growing danger to patient safety posed by forced overtime practices. The bill applies to health care workers in hospitals and creates an exception for emergency situations.
