Q: I am a Title-38 registered nurse for the Veterans Affairs Department. For more than 10 years, I have worked as evening-shift supervisor. My shift has been 3:30 p.m. until midnight. I carry an emergency pager, and I am not allowed to pass this pager off in order to take my 30 minute meal break. Am I entitled to overtime?
A: Probably not. However, you’ll have to check with your personnel office to be sure.
