This policy provision provides that employees may be allowed to work hours that are not within the standard work hours for the department while maintaining a high level of service during the organization’s peak operating hours (typically 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM). Flexible starting and ending times do not affect the number of daily hours worked. For details, review the
Flexible Work Arrangements Policy.
The voluntary reduced work time option allows eligible full-time staff employees to reduce responsibilities while remaining eligible for full-time benefits. The employee may work as few as 17.5 hours per week under this arrangement. The base pay of employees in this program will be reduced proportionately in accord with their reduced duties and reduced hours as will benefits that are based on pay. For details, review the Voluntary Reduced Work Time (V-Time) Policy.
Depending on your need for a flexible work arrangement, you may determine that you want to explore a Leave of Absence. DePaul is committed to supporting you during these times by offering a variety of leave programs. For information about eligibility, what type of leave may meet your need, how to apply for the leave, what to do while you are on a leave and what to do when it is time to return to work from leave, review the
