Summer 2012 University Office Hours

Posted on 4/10/2012 11:52:22 AM

The official university office hours for the summer will begin Monday, May 14, 2012, and continue through Friday, August 17, 2012. University office hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (0800 to 1200 and 1300 to 1600). Employees are required to work 7.5 hours each work day.

To ensure proper payroll administration, it is imperative that the Payroll Office has every employee’s work schedule accurately recorded. The standard work schedule for office employees is 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (0800 to 1630). If you opt to change your work schedule this summer to leave at 4:00 p.m. (1600), the Summer Hours Non-AFSCME 2012 form must be completed and returned to the Office of Human Resources. To aid in a smooth transition of summer hours, please return the form by Friday, April 20, 2012. Note: AFSCME employees and supervisors have received notification regarding the Alternate Work Schedule for the 2012 summer work schedule. The AFSCME Alternate Work Schedule form was to be completed and submitted to the Office of Human Resources by March 30, 2012.

This is a voluntary summer work schedule for those employees who, with the approval of their supervisors, choose to work an alternate schedule during the summer months. Employees may choose to work from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (0800 to1600) with a half-hour lunch between noon and 1:00 p.m. (1200 and 1300) and regularly scheduled breaks. Employees who do not wish to change their present schedules may maintain the 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (0800 to 1630) work schedule with a one-hour lunch period and regularly scheduled breaks.

Some areas are exempt from the voluntary work schedule due to the nature of the work. Employees who work in those exempt areas will not be able to participate in the voluntary summer work schedule. Exempt areas are listed in the Summer Office Hours Guidelines, Section 5, (b).

The Office of Human Resources will be happy to answer questions about the voluntary summer work schedule and the change in the official university business hours. Please call Diane Donahue, Employee Relations director, at 724-357-2431 if you have any questions or need further information.
