SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Proposition 11 would impact emergency ambulance workers by no longer entitling them to work breaks without being on-call. News 8 breaks it down so you can decide how to vote in November.
By requiring private-sector emergency ambulance employees to remain on-call during work breaks, it eliminates certain employer liability, according to California's Official Voter Information Guide.
A 'Yes' vote on this measure means: Private ambulance companies could continue their current practice of having emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics stay on-duty during their meal and rest breaks in order to respond to 911 calls. Private ambulance companies would attempt to reschedule meal and rest breaks that are interrupted by a 911 call.
A 'No' vote on this measure means: Private ambulance companies would be subject to labor laws for this industry. Based on a recent court decision, these laws likely would require ambulance companies to provide EMTs and paramedics with off-duty meal and rest breaks that cannot be interrupted by a 911 call.
