Work Schedules. Workweeks and work shifts of different numbers of hours may be established by the Employer in order to meet business and customer service needs, as long as the work schedules meet federal and state laws.
Work Schedules. Pursuant to FLSA, employees shall have a fixed workweek that consists of a regular recurring period of 168 consecutive hours (seven 24-hour periods) which can begin and end on any day of the week and at any time of the day. The designated workweek for an employee may be changed only if the change is intended to be permanent and not designed to evade overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Management may assign employees to work a five/forty, four/ten, nine/eighty, or other work schedule. Management shall have the right to refuse an employee’s request to work a four/ten, nine/eighty, or other modified work schedule, and to require the reversion to a five/forty work schedule, providing that the exercise of such right is not arbitrary, capricious or discriminatory. The parties further agree that management may require employees to change their work schedules (change days off, except the split day, or working hours) within the same FLSA workweek. Employees on a nine/eighty modified work schedule shall have designated a regular day off (also known as the 9/80 day off) which shall remain fixed. Temporary changes to the designated 9/80 day off at the request of management or the employee is prohibited unless it is intended for the employee to work additional hours (overtime.)
Work Schedules. Section 1. A work schedule is defined as the time of day and the days of the week the employee is assigned to work. A regular work schedule is a work schedule with the same starting and stopping time on five/eight (5/8) hour days. A flexible work schedule is a work schedule which varies the number of hours worked on a daily basis, but not necessarily each day, or a work schedule in which starting and stopping times vary on a daily basis, but not necessarily each day, but which does not exceed forty (40) hours in a workweek and is agreed upon in advance by the employee and the supervisor. An alternate work schedule is anything other than a regular work schedule or a flexible work schedule. Provided, however, nothing in this Section is intended to prohibit management from changing an employee’s flexible work schedule without an employee’s consent where such a change is needed in the regular course of business and where the employee has been initially hired by management, or initially placed on a flexible work schedule, with the express understanding that the person hired or the employee so placed on a flexible work schedule is expected to work a flexible work schedule as a condition of his/her employment.
Work Schedules. It is recognized and understood that deviations from the foregoing normal hours of work may occur from time to time, resulting from several causes, such as but not limited to vacations, leave of absence, weekend and holiday duty, absenteeism, employee requests, temporary shortage of personnel, low census and/or other emergency conditions. The Employer retains the right to adjust work schedules to maintain a safe, efficient and orderly operation. Monthly work schedules shall be posted at least ten (10) days prior to the beginning of the scheduled work period. Except for emergency conditions involving patient care and low census conditions, individual scheduled hours of work set forth on the posted work schedules may be changed only by mutual consent.
Work Schedules a. An appointing authority, with the prior approval of the County Executive, may approve requests of employees covered by this Agreement in their department to work a 9/80 work schedule.
Work Schedules. The written work schedule reflecting each employee's days and hours of work shall be posted in each district headquarters at least twenty-one (21) days in advance of its effective date, except in the case of holidays where said posting shall be at least thirty (30) days in advance of its effective date. Emergencies declared by the Commissioner of Public Safety requiring changes in schedules effecting ten (10) or more employees for the duration of one (1) week or more may be changed without regard to the twenty-one (21) day provision. In any event, the Employer shall distribute summer work schedules no later than March 1 and winter schedules no later than September 1. All schedules shall provide for no less than sixty (60) and no more than one hundred (100) hours within a payroll period. To provide a uniform amount of earnings in an employee's bi-weekly pay check, employees shall carry forward all hours eligible for compensation in excess of eighty (80) in a payroll period into the next regular bi-weekly payroll period within the twenty-eight (28) day work period for which they are scheduled for less than eighty (80) hours. Hours carried forward are added to that payroll period to bring it up to eighty (80) hours, and this computation of time shall be made before the provisions of Article 25 apply. Such hours shall be considered as “administrative time” and shall be subject to the liquidation upon separation provisions of Article 10, Section 6. Nothing herein shall be construed as a guarantee of hours of work per day or per work period. With the approval of the employee's immediate supervisor, employees may mutually agree to exchange work shift assignments but such changes shall not result in overtime payment. The following language applies to the scheduling of Safety Education Officers and District Investigators only: in lieu of a schedule posted twenty-one (21) days in advance, District Specialists may be scheduled 8, 9 or 10 consecutive hours flextime shifts, with no more than forty (40) hours scheduled within the work week. Shifts may be scheduled to accommodate work requirements as a Safety Education Officer or District Investigator. Approved time worked in excess of the scheduled 8, 9 or 10 hour shift will be compensated pursuant to the overtime provisions of the contract.
Work Schedules. One unpaid meal period of 30 minutes at approximately mid-shift shall continue to be provided. Two fifteen (15) minute breaks shall continue to be provided for each full-time shift. Overtime shall continue to be scheduled on a rotation basis by seniority. Vacation Sign-ups and Vacation Requests shall continue to be submitted at least five (5) days in advance of the time off requested. Preparation time/clean-up time of fifteen (15) minutes at the start of the shift and fifteen (15) minutes at the end of the shift shall continue to be provided.
Work Schedules. A. For purposes of this Agreement, “work schedules” are defined as an employee’s assigned work hours and days of the week. Where work schedules vary, they will be posted at least fourteen (14) calendar days prior to the effective date of the posted schedule unless the current practice is for a longer posting period, in which case the longer posting period will be maintained.
