Home - Pay for working when daylight savings ends
April 08, 2015

We have some shiftworkers who worked overnight when daylight savings ended. How many hours are they entitled to be paid for?

Unless a relevant award, agreement or employment contract says otherwise, you should pay employees who work overnight when daylight savings ends according to the clock. Because the clock winds backwards when daylight savings ends, employees will work an extra hour, unpaid.

When daylight savings starts, the opposite will apply, i.e. employees will work 1 hour less but still be paid for the regular shift.
