If you have someone starting a night shift but they don't start until after midnight, what day of the week would that be considered? Example: they start at 12:30am
The reason it might not be so obvious is that there can be weekend differentials, so a Sunday shift can pay differently from a Monday shift. An employee is claiming it is a Sunday shift since it is starting Sunday night.

If you are the employee ask your supervisor or HR. They should have a document that tells shift workers how to correctly fill out their time card. In some cases you may need to enter specific start and end time in order to assign shift premiums to specific hours.
If you are HR this should be a potion of your employee documents. You will have to compare your proposed guidelines to national/local labor laws and any union contracts.
While it does seem simple to say 12:30 am is assigned to the day they start. The big question is when does the Sunday shift premium and overnight premiums begin and end when somebody starts work at 12:30 AM Monday, what happens if that is when their shift ends?
