Weekly HR News - Straight time or overtime?

Daylight Savings Time Ended on Sunday, November 2, 2014

Clocks were turned back last Sunday, November 2nd and unless other arrangements are made(such as leave an hour early or come in an hour later) non-exempt employees on duty at that time (2:00 a.m. – 3:00 a.m.) which normally work an eight-hour shift, actually worked an extra hour, for a total of nine hours of work on that day. Nonexempt (hourly) employees must be paid for all nine hours of work under the Fair Labor Standards Act. They are also entitled to overtime pay for all hours in excess of 40 worked during the week, including the extra hour worked during the conversion back to standard time.
