Daylight Saving Time Starts Sunday, March 9

Mar 7 2014 - Compensation, Workplace Policies - Gail Cecchettini Whaley

Besides the need for extra coffee, daylight saving time may impact your timekeeping practices. Employers should recognize that they may have workers whose shifts are affected by the time change.

Unless an employer uses a computerized time clock that adjusts for daylight-saving time changes, employees may not be paid correctly. An employee that works a shift that spans the spring time change may end up working a seven-hour shift, instead of a typical eight-hour shift.

For information about timekeeping practices related to time changes, CalChamber members can review this time change Q&A in the HR Library.
