While we're all screaming about the falling sky, keep these things in mind. *You can be required to work 2 splits per week as an hourly employee. *Your daily guarantee is 7 hours of pay (3.5 for PT employees) if you work all hours of the split. *Mandatory split assignments are chosen via reverse seniority. *If you volunteer for a weekly split shift schedule, you may go back to a regular continuous schedule with 30 days notice. *A split program should only be used as a last resort.
