For administrative employees, routine working hours are determined by the duties, responsibilities and workload of the position. Work schedules should be discussed with the immediate supervisor who has the authority to alter work schedules based on the need, duties and responsibilities of the position. Normal working hours for administrative employees are 8:30am – 4:30pm, Monday – Friday, which includes one hour unpaid lunch period.

For staff employees in administrative or faculty offices, the work day is seven hours plus an unpaid hour for lunch. The workweek is five days per week. Ordinary work hours for Facilities staff is eight hours, with a half-hour unpaid lunch/dinner period. Ordinary work hours for most other staff are 8:30am – 4:30pm, Monday – Friday, which includes a one hour unpaid lunch period. Work schedules should be discussed with the immediate supervisor who has the authority to alter work schedules based on the need, duties and responsibilities of the position.

Supervisors can alter work schedules for staff employees to avoid the accrual of overtime within a workweek. While supervisors reserve the right to make last minute schedule changes, supervisors will strive, as a courtesy, to give at least 12 hours’ notice to a staff employee when their schedule will be changed.
