Shift Differential

A shift differential of 10% of the employee’s base rate will be paid to any full-time, part-time, or temporary non-exempt employee who is assigned to work evening or night shift on a regularly scheduled basis.  A shift differential will be paid for all hours of a regularly assigned evening or night shift provided the employee actually works four hours or more between the hours of 3:00 p.m and 7:00 a.m.

Shift differential payment is included as part of compensation for calculating the regular rate of pay for determining overtime pay and is included in all types of paid leave, such as holidays, sick leave, and annual leave, provided the employee would have been scheduled to work four hours or more between 3:00 p.m and before 7:00 a.m. on the day leave is taken or the holiday occurs.
