Sample Schedules

Central Washington University Sample Flexwork Schedules

Flexwork is a commonly-used term for an alternate work schedule. The employee works the same number of monthly hours, but other than a 8-5, Monday through Friday workweek. Flexwork may be as simple as an adjusted start or end time, or an adjusted lunch hour. It may be as complex as a "4/10 schedule" (working four 10-hour days, with day 5 as a day off), also referred to as a compressed workweek.

Flexwork is not for everyone. Certain positions have responsibilities that would be adversely affected by such a schedule change, while others have no such problems. After a preliminary examination of an employee's situation, the Flexwork Feasibility Worksheet may be useful.
