Employer Required Certifications.

Postby Efran » Thu Dec 01, 2016 9:59 pm

I am employed as a nurse in a hospital emergency room. I am paid hourly. We are required to keep current our ACLS certification. When our certification is going to expire we have to take an online course which takes approximately 10 hours for most to complete. We are expected to do this at home or on our own time. They do pay for the online certification but not the hours it takes to complete it. Are they required to compensate us for the hours(time) spent taking the online course?

Thanks in advance for your response,

Heidi

Heidi - No, the employer is not required to pay for your certification.  It is a condition for you keeping the job, and therefore is your responsibility.  If the employer required something specifically related to the hospital or department that would not be useful to you elsewhere, that would have to be paid for, but not something that primarily benefits you.
