Hours of Work Policy

Library Board approved April 16, 2002.  Revised January 1, 2012.

  1. Scheduled hours in a regular work week shall be 40 hours for full time employees.
  2. All direct public service employees will be scheduled to work some evening, Saturday, and Sunday hours.  Non-direct public service employees may occasionally be scheduled to work such hours as well.
  3. It is implicit in the nature of supervisory and professional positions that time beyond the regular work schedule must be spent on job-related responsibilities. If an unusual amount of extra work has been required, compensatory time off may be taken within a month of the time in which the extra time was worked, with the approval of the Executive Director or the Assistant Directors.
  4. Employees who work a full work day may take two rest periods during the day as schedules and work requirements permit. Each rest period is limited to 15 minutes.
  5. Part-time employees working less than a full work day may take one 15 minute rest period during each four hour work period, as work requirements permit.
  6. There will be no compensation for missed rest periods, and they may not be used for leaving early or for extended lunch/dinner periods.
  7. Employees who work at least 7.5 hours in a day receive an unpaid meal break of at least 20 minutes no more than 5 hours after the start of the work day.
