Shift differential is additional compensation paid at the discretion of vice presidents to non-exempt TEAMS, USPS, and OPS employees (excluding UF Police Department officers) who work during certain “premium” shifts, defined as follows:
If at least half of the hours of an employee’s shift are worked between 5 p.m. and 12 midnight, 5 percent will be added to the employee’s base rate of pay for that entire shift.
If at least half of the hours of an employee’s shift are worked between 12 midnight and 6 a.m., 10 percent will be added to the employee’s base rate of pay for that entire shift.
If an employee works a shift that encompasses at least four hours in both the night and evening shifts (totaling eight hours or more), 10 percent will be added to the employee’s base rate of pay for the entire extended shift.
If at least half of the hours of an employee’s shift are worked between 12 midnight Friday and 6 a.m. Monday, 5 percent will be added to the employee’s base rate of pay for that entire shift. This shift differential will combine with the evening and night differentials. For example, an employee working a shift that would qualify for the evening shift differential on Saturday would receive 5 percent for the weekend differential and 5 percent evening differential in addition to their base rate of pay.
Shift differential is a pay additive and is considered part of an employee’s regular rate of pay. As such, leaves with pay and holiday pay include the shift differential.
