    Okay say you work at an overnight job. They schedule you till 6am but at six am they say you have to stay an hour extra because of the time change over. But you were only on the sheet till six. Is it wrong for them to say you have to stay later? One of the girls I works with swears it's illegal? Is she right? I just need to know for future reference.

    Don't knoe about illegal, but if your scheduled for a certain number of hours then you may have to work them. If your scheduled for a certain time you should be able to get out at that time. Look at it this way, the oncoming shift will still be coming in at 6 despite losing an hour of sleep.

    Depends on how they look at it.

    In terms of HOURS WORKED, no, staying an extra hour just equals it out to the regular number.

    But, if they judge you based PURELY on the clock, well, I dunno. I wouldn't think so, it probably take into account labor laws that have set amounts of hours per day, and because the clock skips an hour when changing, it doesn't affect that.
