 Work Hours and Time Reporting

Work Schedule

All full-time employees are scheduled to work 40 hours per week except on official College observed holidays. Administrative offices are normally open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Within this schedule, employees are entitled to an hour for lunch. Depending on the type of job assignment, an employee may be eligible for one or two fifteen-minute breaks during the day. Departmental supervisors will advise employees of the department's policy regarding work breaks. In some departments hours will vary depending on administrative requirements. In this case, the supervisor will assign the work schedule to be followed. Full-time faculty will schedule their work breaks around class schedules, office hours, and other professional responsibilities.


Since the College is a continually growing, multi-campus organization, it is possible that the location of an employee’s job assignment may change. It is also possible that job duties may require an employee to travel, on occasion, to the different College campuses. Faculty may be assigned to teach classes at any of the campuses or other class locations.


Part-time employees will follow the work schedules determined by their supervisors.


Time Reporting

Classified staff is required to keep a daily record of time worked on the Monthly Time and Absence Report Form. This time record should accurately reflect the actual time worked and/or the paid leave type for each day. On the last day of the month, this time record must be approved by the supervisor and submitted to the Payroll Office. If an employee is unable to sign the time sheet, the employee’s supervisor should sign on behalf of the employee until such time as the employee is able to sign the time sheet.


Hourly employees (part-time, work-study employees and student interns) are required to keep a daily record of the actual time worked on the appropriate part-time time sheet. The supervisor must approve the time sheet and submit it to the Payroll Office on the last day of the month. If a part-time employee is unable to sign the time sheet, the employee’s supervisor should sign on behalf of the employee until such time as the employee is able to sign the time sheet.


Reporting Absences from Work

Any deviation from an employee’s normal schedule must be reported in advance to the employee’s supervisor. If an employee will be absent or late to work, the employee should contact the appropriate supervisor as soon as possible on each day of absence so that he/she may plan work schedules accordingly. Planned absences (e.g., vacation) must be approved well in advance using the Permission to be Absent from Regular and Usual Duties Form. For unplanned absences, an employee should submit the same form upon his/her return to work. Each employee should keep a careful record of his/her paid leave time available.
