Does the institution offer a condensed work week option for employees as a matter of policy or as standard practice?:
Maryville College requested that AASHE Staff correct a mistake in this reporting field for the reason specified below.Previous Value: Yes
Explanation: See next field
A brief description of the condensed work week program:
The institution does not provide a condensed work week of 4 days or less.
Maryville College requested that AASHE Staff correct a mistake in this reporting field for the reason specified below.Previous Value: This is an optional program with two options available to hourly and salaried staff beginning May 16 through August 5. Under either options, the employee is still scheduled to work 40 hours per week. The first schedule allows staff to work an additional hour each day so that they can leave at noon on Friday. In order to take advantage of this option, employees work four additional hours Monday through Thursday to be able to leave at noon on Friday in that same week. The four additional hours must be worked in the same week or else we will encounter issues with overtime. This can be accomplished by coming to work early, staying late, and/or shortening lunch hours.
Explanation: After further review with Human Resources, we do offer two shorter work week options, but it still requires 5 travel days to work, with the work week ending at noon on Friday.
