2024 Summer Work Hours Options

Summer hours will start on Monday, May 20, 2024 and will end Friday, August 23, 2024. Regular schedules will resume Monday, August 26, 2024. 

Option 1: Starting workday early 

For this option, supervisors may approve an earlier starting time for their staff and/or a 30-minute lunch break. For 40-hour per week employees options could include: 

  • 7–4 p.m. with a 1-hour lunch break 
  • 7:30–4 p.m. with a 30-minute lunch break 

Option 2: Working four 9-hour days and one 4-hour day. 

For this option, supervisors may approve 9-hour shifts on Monday-Thursday with a four-hour shift on Friday. For 40-hour per week, a typical schedule might be:

  • 7–5 p.m. with a 1-hour lunch break Monday-Thursday and Friday 8–noon
  • 7:30–5 p.m. with a 30-minute lunch break Monday-Thursday and Friday 8–noon 

Supervisors have the discretion to approve other work hour schedules based on the needs of the department.  

Either option can work in conjunction with a staff member’s hybrid work agreement.

If you are a 35 or 37-hour employee, contact Human Resources to discuss your options for work schedules. In rare instances, the nature of a staff member’s work may not suit either summer hours option.
