5.3 Shift Differential

Support and service staff members are eligible to be paid a shift differential when regularly assigned to work an afternoon/evening or night shift as follows:

  • Afternoon/Evening Shift: A differential of 5% shall be added to the hourly rates of employees who are regularly assigned to a shift which starts at or after 3:00 p.m. for all hours worked on such shift.
  • Night Shift: A differential of 7% shall be added to the hourly rates of employees who are regularly assigned to a shift which starts at or after 10:00 p.m. for all hours worked on such shift. If an employee's regularly scheduled shift extends beyond 2:00 a.m., he/she shall receive the night shift differential for all hours worked.

A department, laboratory, or office that wants to establish an afternoon/evening or night shift should contact the appropriate Human Resources Officer to discuss conditions under which shift differentials will be authorized and the related policies and procedures.
