Appendix O - Flex-Time Policy

The intent of the flex time policy is to maximize services to the various university publics through improved usage of equipment, facilities and hours of service (i.e. computer terminals; lunch hour service; early/late work hours without phone or walk in interruptions). Each department supervisor is responsible for approving or disapproving flex time to the mutual benefit of departmental and employee needs.
