View Full Version : ? about off time between shifts Wisconsin

My employer is currently about to adopt a schedule that would be a blend of 12's and 8's. It works out that you would have ended your shift, only to report back 7.5 hours later. Given time to get home and get to work this leaves roughly less then 7 hours rest between shifts. This happens a few times in the 6 week cycle. 2nd shift has even less time in there cycle, approx. 4 hours between shifts. Is there any laws regarding this?

With VERY few industry specific exceptions where there is a public safety factor (airline pilot, truck driver, in some states nurses), there are no laws for general employment in any state requiring any particular number of hours off between shifts.
