On March 11 at 2 a.m., most of the United States changes to Daylight Saving Time by setting clocks ahead by one hour.
Your payroll department may need to field questions related to payment for worked time and overtime when this happens because some overnight shift employees will lose an hour of worked time. Let employees know that federal regulations do not call for employers to pay that lost hour to those who working the overnight shift that becomes an hour shorter.
And remember that Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa do not observe the time change.
Daylight Saving Time ends and Standard Time begins again on November 4 at 2 a.m.
