Compressed Work Week Agreement
Flexible time is a paid break that is granted when an employee works more than the hours scheduled on a day, but no overtime. When the employer and employee accept a break with a salary instead of overtime, overtime is paid at a rate of at least 1 hour for each overtime worked. For more information, see overtime and overtime. Overtime for the average period is calculated as if the employee had worked the remaining positions during the programming period (the rules apply for the day or average period). The funding agreement must only indicate a work plan that applies to the employee. The following guidelines are presented to assist in the development of compressed weekly work agreements that are fair and understandable and that benefit each other`s unit or department and employee. Staff are expected to adhere to these principles by proposing compressed weekly work agreements. Superiors and department heads are expected to adhere to these principles when approving compressed weekly work agreements. Before the agreement begins, employers must notify each affected worker in writing 2 weeks in advance. The flexible employment contract, which is not part of a collective agreement, is valid: employers are not prevented from making changes to the worker`s work programme, but it still takes 24 hours of work and 8 hours of rest between shifts. This option is easier to apply to non-taxable workers (two paid weeks) for whom the maximum working time is determined, but it is not excluded for monthly paid employees who may work more than 40 hours during the work week. Duke Payroll`s practices require that non-exempt staff who accept a weekly compressed work agreement be paid overtime based on all hours of more than 40 hours during a work week. Weekly compressed work agreements are initiated on an experimental basis and can be recruited at any time at the request of the employee or the supervisor/head of department.
The units and the department reserve the right to immediately suspend the agreement in case of unforeseen circumstances regarding the employee`s performance or the needs of the company. Note: Collective agreements may define different methods of how workers should obtain copies of funding agreements. A compressed work week aims to create flexible conditions to help employees better integrate their work and private lives and better manage commuting, care, continuing education or community service.
