Employer has the right to do so. The employer cannot discriminate in doing so, meaning cannot pick someone because of race, gender, age. Employer also cannot create a hazard to health in doing so.

To offer more overtime to certain shift versus others is a matter of company discretion but if there is internal objection company may reconsider.
