Daylight Saving Time always begins the second Sunday in March and ends the first Sunday in November.
States that participate in Daylight Savings will turn their clock forward at 2 AM on Sunday, March 13th, 2022. That means that if you are looking at your watch when it says 2 AM, it is really 3 AM.
Fall Back is similar, for participating states, at 2 AM. on Sunday, November 6th, 2022, the clock will roll back to be 1 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.
