OP-T2-30: Condensed Work Week
Director of University Sustainability
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:
Purdue University recognizes that flexible work arrangements can promote better work/life balance for its employees. Existing Purdue policy, Memorandum No. 178, addresses flexible work schedules for biweekly-paid staff and operations/technical assistants as subject to the Fair Labor Standard Act (VPBS 178). These Flexible Work Guidelines, in addition to policy, are being offered to assist exempt and non-exempt employees and their supervisor in making flexible work decisions. The most common practice of a condensed work week would be the “4/40 schedule,” where the employee would work four 10-hour days with one day off each week.
