  • Split Shift Question - Minnesota

    If you start a shift on the previous day, but it ends on the next day (from 8:00 PM to 1:00AM, for example) and then you work sometime later in the day (from 8:00AM - 2:00PM, for example), is that considered a split shift in Minnesota?

    Why do you ask?
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

      And what do you think it will mean if it is?
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        According to my employer's work rules "Split shifts must be avoided whenever possible." I should be able to use this arguement to prevent them from assigning me a split shift on a weekly basis.

          A split shift in this situation is whatever the employer says it is. You'll have to ask them.
          I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

            Sorry, but no. If that is what they assign you, that is what you work. They created the rule, they get to decide how to apply it.

              "Whenever possible" does not mean never. There is no law preventing split shifts. If that's what they want you to work, that's what you work.
