VII- 6.10 - POLICY ON WORK SCHEDULES FOR REGULAR EXEMPT EMPLOYEES (Approved by the Board of Regents on December 3, 1999, EFFECTIVE January 2, and January 12, 2000) I. PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY This policy identifies the work schedule requirements for regular employees in Exempt positions. II. SCHEDULE REQUIREMENTS Employees in Exempt positions should be assigned a reasonable work schedule. The work of employees in exempt positions is not measured solely by the hours worked. Employees in exempt positions are expected to work the hours necessary to complete assignments on a schedule that satisfies the requirements of the job. A full-time commitment typically requires a minimum of 80 hours per bi-weekly payroll period. Although not required and not an entitlement, a limited amount of compensatory leave may be granted, with the prior written approval of the institution CEO or designee. Compensatory leave shall be used within one year from the date it is earned. No compensation shall be paid for compensatory leave that is unused at the time the employee leaves university service, and such leave shall not be restored upon reinstatement. III. TIMEKEEPING Consistent with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), USM exempt employees will note on their timesheets "D" (duty day) to record days worked. IMPLEMENTATION PROCEDURES: Each Chief Executive Officer or designee shall establish procedures as necessary for reasonable work schedules, days worked and recording leave and shall submit a copy of such procedures to the Chancellor. Such institutional procedures may require additional reporting of information as the Chief Executive Officer or designee may direct.
