Employer – Employee: Overtime Pay – Dual Employment – EMT Work

Stephanie Maniscalco//May 5, 2011

Where an emergency medical technician performed full-time hourly work for a hospital and part-time, as-needed shift work for an ambulance district, under the “economic realities” test the trial court did not err in finding that the district was a separate employer with respect to the shift work and that the hospital was not the employer for the shift work, so the trial court properly found that the EMT did not have a claim against the hospital for unpaid overtime.

Judgment is affirmed.

Fields v. Advanced Health Care Management Services, LLC (MLW No. 62170/Case No. SD30756 – 13 pages) (Missouri Court of Appeals, Southern District, Francis Jr., J.) Appealed from circuit court, Butler County, Smith, J. (John P. Clubb, Cape Girardeau, for appellant) (Joy J. Ferguson, Piedmont, for respondent).
