  • Hours between shift

    Is there a law stating there should be a certain number of hours between shift, unless there is an emergency? Or is this something a union contract would have to spell out?

    Yes - federal employment law says you are required to have 8 hours off between shifts. U.S. Department of Labor standard.

                    You have the federal law, but your union should have something spelled out to protect officers from "abuse" through scheduling. A 12 Hour Rule is always a good place to start. If you have a scheduled shift that is within 12 hours of another scheduled shift, the entire infringing shift should be able to be paid out as overtime/comp time.
