Work Schedules

The normal work schedule for all staff is 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For payroll purposes, the College's work week begins at 12:01 a.m. on Monday and continues until 12 midnight of the following Sunday.

Supervisors will advise employees of the times their schedules will normally begin and end. Staffing needs and operational demands may necessitate variations in starting and ending times, as well as variations in the total hours that may be scheduled each day and week. It is the department head's responsibility to schedule and control the hours worked and to revise work schedules consistent with department objectives and College needs.

The department head may schedule and require reasonable and necessary overtime work with reasonable notice to the employee. Non exempt employees cannot adjust their normal work schedule without prior approval from their supervisor. Any adjustment to a normal work week must be indicated on the Monthly Leave and Work Report or Biweekly Timesheet.

Flexible scheduling, or flextime, is available in some cases to allow employees to vary their starting and ending times each day within established limits. Flextime may be possible if a mutually workable schedule can be negotiated with the supervisor involved. However, such issues as staffing needs, the employee's performance and the nature of the job will be considered before approval of flextime. Some jobs are not suited to this type of arrangement, because of the nature of the position or the hours necessary to meet the needs of the department. Employees should consult their supervisor to request participation in the flextime program and to discuss job suitability.
