Minimum Time Between Shifts

Existing law does not specify a minimum time between an employee’s shifts. There are a few safety-related exceptions noted elsewhere; for example, train crews and drivers regulated by the Department of Transportation. You can schedule an employee for a double shift, where a second shift immediately follows the end of an employee’s first shift. However, carefully consider the impact of long hours of work on the health and safety of that employee and all others.​
