Question of the Week: Do We Need to Pay for Eight Hours of Work on the Third Shift Saturday Night?

This week’s question comes from Greg, a plant manager. We have a third shift that works from 11 pm to 7 am the following day. Some of the workers will work this Saturday night into Sunday. Do we need to pay for eight hours of work on the third shift Saturday night? Answer: Since Daylight Saving Time begins in most parts of the country at 2 am, Sunday, March 8, 2009 many workers on a third shift will only work seven hours. At 2 am on that day, clocks are turned ahead to 3 am. The Fair Labor Standards Act does not require employers to pay employees for the hour not worked. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any further questions on the switch to Daylight Saving Time.
