I am employed full time as an exempt employee by the parent corporation. I also pick up per diem hours at one of our affiliates. I receive a W2 from the parent as well as from the affiliate.

Is it okay that I am paid the per diem rate from the affiliate even though I work more than 40 hours in a week?

I am a union employee (registered nurse) at the affiliate, if that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance!

    • Thanks very much! That was my thought as well, but I ran into an old boss yesterday who tried to tell me that it was illegal to work for two companies owned by the same parent corporation and it got me thinking.....

      Goes to show....thinking is bad:rolleyes:

    • If it's okay with both employers and it doesn't violate your union contract, there's nothing in the law that prohibits it.

    • One of the payroll people here.:) Registered nurses can be exempt employees under the Professional exempt classification.

    • It's not illegal. It does raise overtime considerations which I will let one of the payroll people address.
