CORRECTION: Information Regarding Summer Flex 2017

As a reminder, the College will operate with two work schedules this summer from June 2, 2017 through August 10, 2017. An employee may select either of the options set forth below.

Option 1: No Flex - Employee works the regular workweek and regular schedule.

Option 2: Friday Flex Option - Each employee who selects this option is required to work a longer work day Monday through Thursday. The Friday flex option consists of a four day workweek, Monday through Thursday, with an 8.75 or a 10-hour shift in addition to a 30-minute unpaid lunch break. Employees electing this option must do so with the prior approval of the department supervisor. Each department must have coverage during the College's normal operating hours of 8:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. for the full week, Monday through Friday.

Summer flex starts on Friday, June 2nd - that is the first Friday of flex. Flexing employees are then required to work the longer days the following Monday through Thursday. In other words, an employee who chooses to flex takes their flex day first and then make up the time lost to the flex day. This is due to our payroll calendar and our scheduled pay dates.

For the week of July 4th, employees who choose to flex on June 30th will be required to use 1.75 hours of accrued personal or vacation time to make up the hours that they are not able to work on July 4th. This time will be combined with the 7 hours of holiday pay to ensure that all flexing employees report 8.75 hours for July 4th and 35 hours for that pay week on their time sheets.

Each office must be staffed to manage its workload effectively and no office may be closed because of summer hours. Please remember that the ability to take flex time is dependent on whether your supervisor approves the use of flex time and your department is fully staffed. When a conflict arises between the use of contractual leave time, such as vacation or other earned leave, flex time must yield to contractual leave time. An employee's use of flex time may be denied due to staffing issues caused by the use of earned vacation and other contractual leave time.

If you have any questions regarding summer hours, please do not hesitate to contact Human Resources at extension 2106.
