In order to meet the challenges employees encounter as they seek to balance the demands of work and family, employees of Montclair State University may request, on a voluntary basis, flexible scheduling work arrangements that permit variations in starting and departure times. These variations, to be approved, must conform to the operational needs of the work unit and may not alter the total number of hours worked in a workweek.
Employees may request, or supervisors may require that approved flexible work arrangements be implemented on a trial basis to provide an opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of the arrangement. The trial period may continue for up to six monts after initial approval. At six-month intervals thereafter, continuation of the flexible work arrangement will require a review and approval by the employee's supervisor and division vice president/dean. The flexible work arrangement may be terminated, with ten working days' notice, at any point after its initial implementation, if it interferes with the operational needs of the work unit.
The form to request flexible work arrangements is available on-line and from the Division of Human Resources Benefits Office. All terms and conditions of employment remain unchanged during flexible work arrangements except those addressed by the arrangement.
