  • Rotating Schedules California

    I am in California, a government worker and work in a workplace that is open 24/7. My employer has recently put us on a shift that has a mandatory rotation from one schedule to another every two months. In a twelve month period we have to work days x 1 , graves x 2, swing x 2 and reliefs x 2. I know that in California that the employer has to do a secret ballot with a two-thirds approval from the worker for an alternative workweek schedule but would this apply to a mandatory rotating schedule?

    No, rotating shifts are not an AWS. An AWS is proposed and voted into place to legally bypass the "over 8 hours a day=overtime" where employees work up to 10 hours per day, but fewer days per week (like 4 10-hour days).
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      What your employer is doing is legal unless you have some type of binding employment contract to the contrary.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        Also, I am pretty sure that daily overtime and AWS (which alters daily overtime) does not apply to governmental employers/employees. There are a lot of "normal" rules that do not apply to governmental employers.
