Shift Differentials - Outside Normal Working Hours
An employee whose working hours do not conform to normal state business hours shall be eligible for additional compensation up to twelve percent (12%) of the hourly rate for which he or she is eligible as a shift differential if:
- The agency or institution routinely schedules more than one (1) work shift per day.
- The shift to which the employee is assigned is a full:
- Evening work shift beginning not earlier than 2:30 p.m. and ending not later than 11:30 p.m.
- Night work shift beginning not earlier than 11 p.m. and ending not later than 8 a.m. the next day.
- The employee is regularly assigned to these shifts on a regularly scheduled rotating basis.
An employee assigned to an evening shift may receive up to six percent (6%). An employee assigned to a night shift may receive up to twelve percent (12%). In those instances in which the granting of a shift differential has the effect of temporarily exceeding the maximum annual rate for the grade assigned to the employee's position, the additional compensation shall not be considered as exceeding the maximum allowable rate for that job title.
