Shift Premium

Staff members whose work or shift begins during specified afternoon and evening time periods are paid a shift premium in addition to their regular pay rate.

Full-time, regular staff members whose shifts begin on or after 12:00 noon but before 8:00 p.m. receive an afternoon shift premium. Staff members receive an evening (night) shift premium for shifts that start on or after 8:00 p.m. but before 4:00 a.m.

Part-time, regular staff may also be eligible for shift premium pay. Check with your immediate supervisor to see if you are entitled to it.

When a shift is scheduled in two segments (split-shift) divided by a period exceeding one hour, the second segment will represent a new starting time for the purpose of determining shift premium eligibility. (SPG 201.55)
