Hours of Work

Full-time employees, will normally work eight hours a day, five days a week, for a total of 40 hours. In some situations, you could work 40 hours in a three or four-day workweek. A minimum of 35 hours per week, however, is considered full-time.

All full-time employees are expected to work overtime hours if it is determined to be necessary by their administrator. (Refer to MONEY MATTERS, Overtime.)

Hours of work for part-time staff members are based on a schedule established by the administrator and agreed to by the individual.

While changes in daily work schedules do not occur often, they are sometimes necessary to accommodate changes in work loads. *Continuing full-time employees are expected to adjust to daily work schedule changes of up to one hour. Continuing part-time and temporary staff are expected to adjust to all daily and weekly work schedule changes.

If for some reason you are unable to accept a change in your work schedule, check with your administrator regarding the Job Security Policy.

*The use of the words "continuing full-time/part-time" throughout this manual are not used to imply long-term employment. Unless otherwise established in a written employment contract, employees of the College are considered employees at will and employment can be terminated by the employee or the employer at any time for any reason.
