Flexible Work Schedules (Flextime) allow employees to request alternate time of arrival and departure with consideration to the operational needs of the department. For example, an employee may request a work schedule with an arrival time of 7:00 am – 3:30 pm.
Compressed Work Schedule (CWS) are fixed work schedules, but they enable full-time employees to complete the basic 80-hour biweekly work requirement in less than 10 workdays. For example, an employee may request to work four 10-hour workdays vs five 8-hour workdays.
Reduced Work Schedules allow for a reduction in work hours to accommodate personal or professional development needs for a specified period of time. For example, an employee may request to work 70% vs 100% for a period of time to complete an educational program. These arrangements affect certain benefits (leave, retirement, tuition, etc.) and consultation with the HR Department Benefits Staff is strongly recommended before finalizing/approving the arrangement.
