OT - 8 & 80

Hello, for those of you on an 8 & 80 rule for your overtime, do you start your 24-hour period at the same time (ex: midnight) for all staff, or do you have various 24-hour periods for your staff (ex: following their normal shift start time – perhaps 2nd shift or 3rd shift)?  We currently have two different periods (midnight to midnight, then start of third shift to end of second shift the next day), but it seems to be popping up quite a bit with staff and their displeasure of it.  I am wondering what the industry standard is.   Thanks in advance!

Thank you,

Do you define the number of days off a person gets by the relationship (ex: grandfather, aunt, etc), or do you give a straight numbef of days off?

Thanks for your guidance.
