2,300: Work Week for Classified Employees

Revised: September 2020

The full time standard work week for classified employees shall be 40 hours Monday through Friday, except in those departments such as Residential Life, Housing and Food Service; University Police; Facilities Services; Library, etc., which must operate on an irregular schedule due to the nature of the operation. It shall be the prerogative of the appointing authority to determine the hours and days worked by each classified employee and to adjust these to fit the needs of the division. Classified employees who work over the normal 40-hour week (or over eight hours in any work day) shall be compensated as provided in Section 2,235 of this manual.

All irregular work schedules must be approved through a written Modified Overtime Agreement and shall be reported to and approved by the appointing authority. Work schedules with slight variations from the norm (i.e., 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. with one-half hour off for lunch, etc.) would not fall into an irregular work schedule category. The work schedule for a regular classified employee must be at least 21 hours per week or 53% FTE.

The university "work week" is a calendar week, running from 12:00 am Sunday to 11:59 pm on Saturday.
