OK, so the clocks just jumped back an hour....my dilemma is this:

I work overnights, from 7pm - 7am, should I get paid an extra hour for this sacrifice, or is it thrown out the window? (Basically meaning I've spent an extra hour here for free...)

How do your jobs handle this? Do I have a cause to say something to someone?

Come on, VN, help me out here happy

I'd be demanding an extra hour of pay personally.

I didn't work overnights when we set the clocks forward, so it wasn't an issue...

My issue is quite simple. Just because the clocks made an hour simply vanish, I was still physically here, and worked for that 60 minutes babysitting servers, and telling nurses how to turn the wireless switch back on so they could dispense meds. IMO, I should get paid for that extra 60 minutes.

Now, if I'm still on this shift when they turn the clocks forward again, I'll gladly stay an extra hour to make sure I hit my 12, but when they go back I shouldn't be penalized an hour's pay simply because the clocks get turned back.

You should get paid for it. You get paid for the time you put in, not the time that the clock says.

You lose an hour when you set the clocks forward.

I'm in the same boat. I work 6pm - 6am. I will be paid 13 hours for that night. I'd make sure to keep track of your hours for the pay period that that day will be included in, however....just to make sure you get the right amount of hours. happy

That is one nice thing, the Kronos system takes all of the hours and places them on the day you actually swiped in, so all 13 hours should get counted on Saturday. Of course, Sundays are the laggy day for clock-to-system transfers, so after I swiped out that morning it didn't show my out punch, so I won't know WHAT I actually got paid for until I go back to work on Wednesday...

Yes, but he'd gain an hour of pay. By being there from 6 pm to 6 am he would only be there for 11 yet get paid for 12.

Eshrad wasn't on nights during the spring anyway, so it doesn't even matter, but Qwikk spoke correctly.

I think you should get paid for the extra hour. If the payroll computers won't recognize it that way, then you should get an hour of comp time or something then.

you can bet your bottom dollar you wouldn't get paid extra in the spring, so you should get the extra hour in the fall.

Yeah right. I seriously doubt any company will pay someone 12 hours of pay for 11 hours of work.

I talked to my payroll admin the next morning and she was like "Oh I totally forgot, here you go!" *clickety clickety*
