Flexible Schedule Policy

The  operating days and hours of [Company Name] are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. All employees are expected to be at work during these hours unless approval is granted for a flexible work schedule (flextime).

Flextime at [Company Name] is a work schedule with time of arrival and departure that differs from the standard operating hours by not more than two hours. For example, a typical flextime arrangement is arrival at 10:30 a.m. and departure at 7:30 p.m.

Supervisors will approve flextime on a case-by-case basis. Full-time employees who have completed at least six months of employment are eligible for flextime. The employee must first discuss possible flextime arrangements with his/her supervisor and then submit a written request using the Flextime Request Form. The supervisor will approve or deny the flextime request based on staffing needs, the employee’s job duties, the employee’s work record and the employee’s ability to temporarily or permanently return to a standard work schedule when needed.

A flextime arrangement may be suspended or cancelled at any time. Exempt employees must depart from any flextime schedule to perform their jobs. Non-exempt employees may be asked to work overtime regardless of a flextime schedule.
