Flexible Work Hours and Staffing

Flexible Work Hours and Staffing

PS-79, Revision: PS0079.R02, Effective: March 1. 2001

Excerpt from PS-79: 

The purpose of this policy is to describe the campus policy on flexible work hours and flexible staffing. 

The University's regular business hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. However, campus departments may have official hours which differ in order to provide necessary services, including multiple shifts.

Departments are encouraged to consider flexible schedules when in the best interest of employees and the department. LSU recognizes that flexible schedules can improve morale, productivity and recognize the contributions made before and after normal work hours, particularly by professional staff.

Flextime is a work schedule equal to 40 hours per week but differing from the regular business hours. A flextime schedule is appropriate only when the work schedule is beneficial to the University. Working a flextime schedule is a privilege, not an employee right and flexible schedules are not appropriate for all job situations.
