A reminder that daylight saving ends this weekend when the clocks are put back one hour at 2am on Sunday morning, 1 April 2018.
If you have employees working a nightshift spanning this time period and work one hour more than they normally would due to the time change, they are entitled to be paid their appropriate rate of pay for the actual hours they have worked.
For example: an employee is rostered to work 8 hours - 10pm to 6.30am, with a half hour break. At 2am the clock goes back. When they finish at 6.30am they will have worked a total of 9 hours. They are therefore entitled to be paid for the 9 hours they worked, rather than the 8 hours they were rostered for.
If you have any questions regarding this, or any other employment and wage matter, please contact Vicki Cozens, our Employment, Payroll and HR specialist.
