Yes

A brief description of the program:

Compressed work weeks reduce the number of days an employee works in a given period. With a compressed work week, the total number of hours an employee works does not change--only the way his or her hours are scheduled. For instance, one of the most common forms of a compressed work week is the 4/10 schedule, where forty hours are worked in four 10-hour days, thus reducing the employee's commute trips by 20%. Compressed work weeks must be approved through one's supervisor and Human Resources.
