Voluntary Shifts and Split Shift Premium

Published Monday, April 29, 2019

A split shift is a work schedule that is interrupted by unpaid, non-working time periods established by the employer. To be considered a split shift the time period between shifts needs to be longer than a bona fide meal period and needs to be within the same workday.
