This year, Daylight Saving Time returns at 2:00 am on Sunday, March 8. At that time, all clocks should be turned ahead one hour.
Employers with continuous operations often question how the time change affects shift workers who will work one hour less if they are on duty when Daylight Saving Time goes into effect. If an additional hour’s pay is given to an employee who works one less hour, it need not be included in calculating the employee’s regular rate of pay for the purpose of any overtime due that week. This extra hour’s pay, however, may not be credited toward any overtime compensation due.
We have created a poster reminder about the return to Daylight Saving Time. You can access that poster at https://www.capital.org/eweb/upload/CAI/cai-main/public/2015/time-change-2015-spring.pdf.
