Straight time or Overtime? What to do when the Time Changes

Weekly HR News - Straight time or overtime? 

Daylight Savings Time Ends on Sunday, November 6, 2016

Clocks turn back Sunday, November 6, 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 a.m. – 3 a.m.) which normally work an eight-hour shift, will have 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.
