Shift Differential Pay is defined as pay at a rate that is one step above the employee’s base pay. Effective the first full pay period following the Board of Supervisor’s adoption of this 2019 successor MOU, shift differential pay, for the purpose of this Section, shall be defined as pay at a rate that is eight percent (8%) above the employee’s base pay. Base pay for the purpose of calculating shift differential shall be the employee’s base pay, including premium pay for being registered as a Civil Engineer or Land Surveyor. Employees are not eligible for shift differential when they are out on sick leave. Effective March 1, 2015, all grandfathering and special agreements related to shift differential are eliminated.

Full-Time Employees who are assigned to work a full day, a portion or all of which is between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. shall be paid at a shift differential rate for all hours worked between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. during such a shift, up to 40 hours per week.

Full-Time Employees who work between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. which said time is calculated as overtime hours, shall not be paid shift differential pay for said hours.

Full-Time Employees shall not be paid shift differential pay if the hours of work have been adjusted at the request of or for the convenience of the employee (i.e. such as a four-ten (4/10), nine/eighty (9/80), or other variable time schedule).
