excess of 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a workweek. Hours of
work officially ordered in advance, and in excess of 8 hours in a
day or 40 hours in a week, will be processed and approved as
overtime or compensatory time per references (b) and (c).
c. Per references (a), (d) and (e) with the written approval
of the supervisor and subject to the needs of the organization,
an employee may select a starting time under the flexible
schedule, option 2, shown below. However, based on emergent
set a starting time for a particular day/week to meet deadlines,
workload surges, etc. The flexible schedule provides flexible
time bands at the start, midday (lunch), and end of the workday.
Employees with approval to work a schedule are required to be at
work or on leave during the core hours shown below. The
following core hours are those designated hours, during which an
employee must be present for work:
d. A flexible lunchtime is established in the middle of the
workday. Generally, lunch breaks are mandatory and shall be
taken no later than five hours after the start of the shift. An
employee's failure to take a lunch break without the supervisor's
knowledge and approval will not shorten the length of the
workday, nor accrue compensatory time, overtime or credit hours.
The lunch break may be extended to make up excess time by
extending the workday or taking annual leave.
e. Compressed Work Schedule (CWS) Procedures
(1) Option 3, is a CWS of 5/4-9. Participants will work an
80-hour biweekly period compressed into nine days. The biweekly
work period will consist of eight 9-hour days, one 8-hour day
(plus the allowed lunch break for each day), and one regular day
off. Participants' work schedules shall be approved subject to
the needs of the organization. Employees assigned to a CWS may
arrive no earlier than 0630 or depart no later than 1800 as
scheduled by their supervisor.
(2) The number of hours credited for a holiday will be
determined by the employee's CWS. An employee scheduled to work
eight hours on a day that is a holiday will receive credit for
eight hours of holiday pay. An employee scheduled to work 9
hours on a day that is a holiday will receive credit for 9 hours
of holiday pay. When a holiday falls on the employee's regular
day off, the employee may have the day following or preceding the
holiday as their holiday. The supervisor must approve which day
will be designated as the holiday.
