This year, Sunday, November 6 marks the return to standard time, when clocks will be moved back one hour at 2:00 a.m.
Shift workers on duty at that time who normally work an eight-hour shift will actually work an extra hour, for a total of nine hours of work on that day. Employees must be paid for all nine hours of work under the Fair Labor Standards Act. They are also entitled to overtime for all hours in excess of 40 worked during the week, including the extra hour worked during the conversion to standard time.
