Do you work 24-hour shifts, live at your job site, or remain on your employer’s or client’s premises or job site during your shift or hitch? Does your employer deduct sleep time from your pay?
Federal regulations require your employer to provide you with regularly scheduled sleep periods at a fixed time in order to deduct those periods from your pay. Sleeping whenever is possible or as work allows is not sufficient. If you and your employer have not agreed to a fixed schedule for sleep periods at the same time every day, you may be entitled to compensation for any sleep periods that have been deducted from your pay.
Home Health Workers
Do you work 24-hour or live-in shifts at the residence of your employer’s home health clients? If your employer has not arranged for you to have a set time for sleeping every day, you may be entitled to compensation for any sleep periods that have been deducted from your pay.
Oil Field Workers
Do you work a shift or hitch for several days, weeks, or months at a time while living on your employer’s premises? If your employer does not give you breaks for sleep scheduled at the same time every day, you may be entitled to compensation for sleep periods that have been deducted from your pay.
