These efforts include that your employer 1) seek persons who volunteer to work extra time from all available qualified staff who are working at the time of the unforeseeable emergent circumstance; 2) contact all qualified employees who have made themselves available to work extra time; 3) seek the use of per diem staff; or 4) seek personnel from a contracted temporary agency when such staff is permitted by law or regulation.
An employee worked more than 12 consecutive hours shall be entitled to at least ten consecutive hours of off-duty time immediately after the worked overtime.

Editor’s Note: “Making the Tough Call” is a special series of articles that will address social workers’ questions about mandated reporting of suspected child abuse. Or perhaps while you’re shopping at the mall, you see a parent grab a young child by the arm and spank them for touching something off limits. The simple answer to the first question is “yes.” If you are a social worker, you are a mandated reporter.
However, if there is an exception (i.e., a real emergency as defined under the Act), MOT can only be used as a last resort and after other steps have been taken.
