Work Schedules

The normal work schedule for all employees is 7-1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week. Normal office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with an hour for lunch. Staffing needs, job assignments 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.

These situations do not necessitate flexible scheduling as they are considered to be normal hours for the program staff is assigned to. Flexible schedules may be approved on a temporary basis under extenuating circumstances. Employees requesting consideration must first receive approval from the team leader; request, including reason for a change in schedule, must then be submitted in writing to the Executive Director for consideration. Approval will only be granted in those cases that warrant deviation from regular hours of operation.

Working at home is not to be the normal. Anyone who thinks they cannot get their work done in the office and has to work at home is required to receive written approval from the Executive Director. Also no one in the office should be regularly working late. If you are not able to get your job done during normal business hours please see the Executive Director.
