Time to “fall back” on November 7

Wage and Hour 

Remember to set your clocks back one hour when Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, November 7, 2010, at 2 a.m. If you’re not working during the time change, enjoy your extra hour of sleep. For employees who normally work eight hours on the night shift, they may work nine hours that day (e.g., from 11 p.m. Daylight Saving Time to 7 a.m. Standard Time). Employers must pay employees for all hours actually worked, which may include overtime. As an employer, you cannot offset the pay for the extra hour worked on November 1, even if you voluntarily paid eight hours for only seven hours of work when Daylight Saving Time began in March.
