Governor Signs Delozier Bill Allowing Airline, Hospital Employees More Schedule Flexibility
7/5/2012
HARRISBURG— Gov. Tom Corbett today signed a measure into law, authored by Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland), that allows airline and hospital employees more flexibility in voluntary shift changes.

House Bill 1820 amends Pennsylvania’s Minimum Wage Act to exempt airline and hospital employees from receiving overtime pay for hours worked in excess of a 40-hour work week when the employee’s accrued overtime is due to a voluntary agreement among employees and an employer to trade scheduled work hours.

“The heath care and airline industries are very dynamic and have running operations 24/7, 365 days a year,” said Delozier. “This legislation will enable airline and hospital employees to voluntarily trade scheduled work hours with fellow employees, thus allowing them more flexibility to address personal matters.”

Airline employees in 42 of 50 states already have similar flexibility to do the voluntary shift swapping as is being proposed in this legislation.

“An employee could now trade shifts with another employee so that they work four 12-hour days with three days off, instead of a standard 40-hour work week, without the employer being obligated to pay overtime after 40 hours,” said Delozier. “In many cases, employees were denied schedule shift changes because overtime pay would be required by law.”
