One of the most common questions we have been asked since the COVID-19 pandemic has hit Chicago is: What do I receive for compensation if my day off is cancelled and it is also my 6th or 7th workday?
The answer is: You receive time and one-half for the hours actually worked or a minimum of eight-hours pay, whichever is greater. You cannot receive time and one-half for both the cancelled day off and time and one-half for the 6th or 7th workday. Only one of the provisions applies.
Here are some examples.
Your day off is cancelled and you work a full eight-hour tour on the 6th or 7th day. You are credited with twelve-hours.
Your day off is cancelled and you are sent home after six-hours on the 6th or 7th day. You are credited with nine-hours.
Your day off is cancelled and you are sent home immediately after reporting on the 6th or 7th day. You are credited with eight-hours.
You had an RDO cancelled and Friday or Saturday is your 6th or 7th workday in a Sunday through Saturday calendar week. You are credited with time and one-half for hours worked.
