Overtime Hours and Heart Health

Take Heart, Take a Break
Recently, Dr. Marianna Virtanen at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health and University College London says the link between heart health and work hours has to do with balance. It’s a risk factor that is overlooked if “you do not have enough time to take care of your health,” says Dr. Virtanen.

The study included the health impact to over 6,000 civil servants in Britain who were followed for over a decade. Although the workers in the study were white-collar workers, the findings might well be applicable to those working in other jobs that require long hours and limited time for personal health.

If you are working long hours and you believe you may be entitled to overtime pay, please contact the San Francisco law firm of Hersh & Hersh for a free evaluation of your situation. We have experience helping workers get the pay to which they are entitled and we can evaluate your rights at no charge to you.

Don’t let long hours go unpaid. And take time to take care of yourself and your heart health.
