  • pay for hours worked during daylight savings time Wisconsin

    I can't find any information regarding pay during daylight savings time. The company I work for (it is a 24 hour operation) does NOT pay you for the extra hour in the fall. They say that it evens itself out in the spring. However, we have rotating days off, so if you work in the fall you don't necessarily work in the spring. Basically, in the fall, you only get paid for 8 hours even though you work for 9 and in the spring you get paid for 8 even though you work for 7. Does anyone know if this is legal?

      Goodness. That is a really stupid thought process that your employer has. WOW!

        Maybe the employer is hoping for a 100% turnover of nonexempt employees between now and then.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

            Thank you for your help. This will help a lot!!!!

            As for hoping for a turnover, it takes almost 6 months before positions are filled - leaving a lot of overtime for the rest of us.

              Not only is that not legal, it's incredibly stupid. You and your co-workers may contact WI's Department of Workforce Development to file a complaint. 608-266-3131
