OT - 8 & 80

Hello, for those of you on an 8 & 80 rule for your overtime, do you start your 24-hour period at the same time (ex: midnight) for all staff, or do you have various 24-hour periods for your staff (ex: following their normal shift start time – perhaps 2nd shift or 3rd shift)?  We currently have two different periods (midnight to midnight, then start of third shift to end of second shift the next day), but it seems to be popping up quite a bit with staff and their displeasure of it.  I am wondering what the industry standard is.   Thanks in advance!

Thank you,

Current Wage Survey

Comments : I am looking for current wage information for healthcare professionals. The positions I am researching are RN, LPN, CNA, Housekeeping/Laundry, Dietary Cooks, Dietary Aides, and Facility Maintenance Helpers. The data I am looking for includes starting wages, high wages, and basis for starting wage. Aside from contacting comparable local facilities, where is everyone getting their data? (I do look at glassdoor, payscale, and, but I don't really count that data due to reliability concerns.) Any idea who has done the most recent wage survey for the industry? Any help would be appreciated!
