Yes

A brief description of the program:

Flexible scheduling for staff may be established by any University school or department or may be requested by any employee.

The choice of a work schedule for an individual or a unit must be made subject to the overriding requirement that full school or departmental operations, services, and academic commitments will be maintained. In all cases, flexible schedules are subject to department approval. During holiday periods and the summer, when University schedules are constricted, flexible scheduling options may be limited. No one should be required to work a non-standard schedule except in areas where such a schedule is a condition of employment or made necessary by operational requirements. Department heads may restrict flexible scheduling options when work flow or other conditions require. Appeals of such decisions should be referred to the appropriate dean or department head.

Fixed Flexible Schedule
The employee's weekly pattern remains consistent, but is other than the department's standard schedule.

Compressed Schedule
A workweek is fixed but compressed into fewer than five full days (e.g., four or four-and-one-half days).

Totally Flexible Schedule
A participant can, on a daily basis and within specific limits, start and finish work at his or her discretion, so long as the total time required for a given period is completed.
