4.5 Workweek and work hours
The university workweek is defined as a seven-day period that begins at 12:01 a.m. Monday and ends at 12 midnight Sunday. A normal workweek of 40 hours is established for most employees. Because of the variety of functions of the many departments within the university, there may be differences in normal hours and days of work. An employee starting a new job should ask the departmental supervisor for the work schedule. While the normal workweek of 40 hours is achieved through working five 8-hour days in a workweek, some employees achieve a 40-hour workweek by working four 10-hour days in a workweek. For leave benefits, see Chapter 7 for the policy governing how such employees are paid for recognized university holidays, extra given days, vacation and sick leave. For the university closing policy, see Section 2.15.
