No, there is no legal requirement for shift pay or additional pay for shifts over 10 hours or for swing or split shifts; the employer may pay the same or constant rate. If you work more than 40 hours in a work week and are an hourly employee, you are entitled to overtime for any time worked past 40 hours.
