Fall Back

This Sunday the clocks will go back one hour at 2a.m. This means that we end up having a 25 hour day. For most of us we just have an extra hour in bed. However for people working shifts, anyone working the night shift will end up working an extra hour.

So how do companies cope with the 25 hour day?

The easiest method that we used; is to pay any member of staff who is working the extra hour, for that hour. This can be either at basic or overtime rates. If you are using a Banked Hours system then that hour can come out the Banked Hours.

What happens in the spring with the contrasting 23 hour day?

The easiest thing is to forget about it. The amount of admin, etc. involved, would mitigate any saving made.
