9 days straight of 12 hours shift
1 attorney answer
You only get overtime on the seventh consecutive day if that is the seventh consecutive day of the same workweek. On that day you get time-and-a-half overtime for the first 8 hours and double time thereafter.
If your consecutive days are across two workweeks, there is no double time for working on the seventh consecutive day, or the eighth or ninth for that matter.
You are entitled to time-and-a-half overtime whenever you work more than 8 hours in a workday, of 40 hours in a workweek. You get double time whenever you work more than 12 hours in a workday.
Be sure to recognize the difference between a shift and a workday. You measure overtime by number of hours in a workday, not a shift.
Good luck to you.
