Daylight Saving Time always begins the second Sunday in March and ends the first Sunday in November.
Fall Back for participating states is at 2 AM on Sunday, November 5th, 2023; the clock will roll back to 1 AM.
States that participate in Daylight Saving will turn their clock forward at 2 AM on Sunday, March 10th, 2024. That means that if you are looking at your watch when it says 2 AM, it is really 3 AM.
How does this affect you?
- Task Start Times: Most cell phones will automatically adjust at 2 AM. but if you use a manual clock, you need to be sure to adjust it before going to bed to ensure you make it to your task in time.
- Hourly Tasks: If you are working an hourly task between the hours of 12 AM-3 AM, you may have to check with the Customer how this may affect your pay. For example, (Spring Forward), if you are scheduled for an 8-hour shift, you may only be working 7 hours and get paid accordingly. Likewise, for Fall Back, if you are scheduled for an 8-hour shift, you may actually be working 9 hours and get paid accordingly.
