Flexible Work Plans (FWPs) offer creative approaches for completing work while addressing both work and personal commitments. FWPs are not a benefit, entitlement or accommodation; they must make business sense. Approval will be based in part on the employee’s past performance, the type of work needed to be performed, and other department or College needs. FWPs incorporate a variety of possibilities that expand options for where and when is completed, while maintaining a consistent schedule:
Flex Time: Work start and end times differ from the standard; the same number of scheduled work hours per week is retained.
(examples could include shifting your work day from 8:30am - 5:00pm to 7:30am - 4:00pm)
Compressed Work Week: Alternative schedule that compresses a normal work week into fewer than five days; the same number of scheduled work hours per week is retained.
(examples could include moving from working five 8 hour days to four 10 hour days)
Telecommuting & Hybrid: Work from a remote location one or more days per week; the same number of scheduled work hours per week is retained. Please review the corresponding Telecommuting Policy.
