Official Workweek and Hours of Work
Calculating Work Time For the purpose of calculating hours worked, compensation, overtime and overtime compensation, the official SEU workweek is from Sunday through Saturday. Absences for annual leave or sick leave do not count in determining the number of hours worked. Charges to annual or sick leave in any one workweek will be offset by hours worked that week in excess of the employee's normal schedule. Annual leave charges, then sick leave charges will be reduced by hours worked in excess of normal.
Determining Work Schedules Employees work at such times as directed by their supervisors. The established hours of full-time employees are generally 40 hours per week. For most Regular full-time employees, this is 8 hours per business day; however, other schedules that better serve the needs of the institution may also be adopted. At the supervisor's discretion, some work units may take periodic paid rest breaks. Such breaks may not exceed 15 minutes in length or 2 in an eight-hour shift (1 for a four-hour shift). Paid rest breaks cannot be accumulated for use at a later date nor used to shorten the regular workday. In all instances, the utilization of rest breaks is subject to the workload demands of the organizational unit.
