Summer Flexible Hours

As in past years, Skidmore is again offering summer flex-time hours to non-exempt staff employees, effective May 18, 2015, through August 28, 2015. The guidelines for flex-time are summarized in the following options:

Option One: An employee may work a schedule of five days per week, seven (7) hours per day plus a one (1) hour unpaid lunch period daily. Examples: Monday–Friday 7:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.; 8 a.m.–4 p.m.; 9:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.

Option Two: An employee may work a four-day per week schedule by extending the seven-hour work day to eight (8) hours and 45 minutes per day plus a one (1) hour unpaid lunch period. Example: Monday–Thursday 7:30 a.m.–5:15 p.m.

Option Three: An employee may take a one-half (30 minute) unpaid lunch period in place of a one (1) hour unpaid lunch period daily. Examples: Monday–Friday 7:30 a.m.–3 p.m.; (5-day schedule) or Monday–Thursday 7:30 a.m.–4:45 p.m.; 8 a.m.–5:15 p.m. (4-day schedule).

All requests for a summer flex schedule require advance approval by the employee's supervisor and/or department head. Although there may be instances where the operational needs of an office or department preclude the use of flex-time, the accommodation of flexible summer work schedule requests is encouraged as much as possible. Consistent with government regulations, employees may not use more than one-half of their one hour lunch period to reduce their overall work schedules.

If you have any questions regarding any aspect of the summer flex-time benefit, please contact Leslie Miakisz, HRIS and Payroll Coordinator, at ext. 5806 or by email at
