Does the institution offer a condensed work week option for employees? The institution does not have to offer the option to all employees in order to earn this credit.:

A brief description of the program:

All of Agnes Scott's business activities take place in a compressed work week (4 days) for the months of June and July.

In addition, staff members have the options of a compressed work week during the rest of the year, if their assignments allow. This options gives employees the ability to work longer days for part of a week or pay period in exchange for shorter days or a day off during that week or pay period.

For employees who would like to participate in the compressed workweek program they must formalize an agreement between the employee and their manager and signed off by the division vice president. They can then establish a 9-day work period over the course of 10-days which means working the total number of hours one would normally work in a 10-day period over 9-days, taking the 10th day off. Some employees may be off every other Friday and/or Monday, depending on the department’s scheduling arrangement. (In some cases it is neither Friday nor Monday but a day in the middle of the week that works best.)

For Employees on a 35-hour week work 5 days at 8 hrs. each and 4 days at 7.5 hrs. each for the 9-day two-week period, rotating within departments to keep the operation open 8:30-4:30 every day.

For Employees on a 40-hour week work 5 days at 9 hrs. each and 4 days at 8.75 hrs. each for the 9-day two-week period, rotating within departments to keep the operation open 8:30-4:30 every day.
