Alternative Work Schedules

A. Definitions

1. Flexible (Flextime) Work Schedules

Flexible time is defined as a schedule of working hours within which the employee's time of arrival and departure from the work site may vary within limits consistent with the duties and requirements of their position. The only requirement of a flexible work schedule is that employees must account for the basic work requirement. The basic work requirement is the number of hours, excluding overtime hours, which an employee is required to work or to otherwise account for by an appropriate form of leave.

2. Compressed Work Schedules

A compressed schedule enables the full-time employee to complete a week's basic work requirement in a 4-day week. The employee's time of arrival and departure from the work site are set as are the days on which they are to complete the basic work requirement. For eligible employees working under compressed schedules, overtime pay will continue to be paid for work outside the compressed schedule.

3. Job Sharing Agreements

A job share is an arrangement in which two non-probationary employees share one position, with each job share participant working fifty percent of the full-time hours of the position and with benefits, if any, to be contained in regulation.

Editor's Note
For overtime see School Board policy 4-87.
