- Shift differential pay, for the purpose of this Section, is defined as pay at a rate that is 8% above the employee’s base pay.
- Notwithstanding paragraph (1) above, the biweekly shift differential pay for full-time employees shall be at least twenty dollars ($20.00) above the employee’s base pay, to be prorated for part-time employees.
Effective as soon as possible but no later than within the first three pay periods following Board of Supervisors’ adoption of a successor MOU, employees who are regularly assigned by a supervisor to work a shift of eight (8) hours or more that starts after11:59 a.m. and before 1:01 a.m. shall be paid shift differential rates for all hours worked during such shift. To be eligible for shift differential, such shifts must be approved by the Department Head or designee. Time worked on a flexible schedule requested by the employee and approved by the supervisor shall not be eligible for shift differential.
Effective as soon as possible but no later than within the first three pay periods following Board of Supervisors’ adoption of a successor MOU, employees in Records and the Jail (Sheriff’s Department) who work day shift, and who are assigned by the Department to continue to work past the end of their shift for at least four (4) hours to cover part or all of swing shift, or to come in early to cover part or all of grave shift for at least four (4) hours contiguous with their regular shift, will receive shift differential for the swing or graveyard shift hours. If an employee in Records or the Jail, who regularly works a shift differential-eligible shift, is required to work overtime at the end of their shift with no break, the employee will receive shift differential for the additional overtime worked.
A split shift shall be defined as a daily work schedule that is interrupted by non-paid, non-working periods established by the County, other than bona fide rest or meal periods.
Employees who are assigned to, and work, a split shift as defined in this Section shall be paid a minimum of one (1) hour of pay at the California state minimum wage, in addition to the shift differential described in Section 8.2 where applicable.
For employees who work a split shift, hours worked before 11:59 am shall not be combined with hours worked after 11:59 am in order to achieve the requisite eight (8) hours for shift differential pay described in Section 8.2 entitled “Applicable Shifts.”
Where shift differential is paid, it will only be paid for actual hours worked, not for the additional one (1) hour of pay at the California state minimum wage.
