Summer Flex  Schedule

We will again implement flexible work hours for the summer months.  Flex-time will begin on Monday, May 11, 2015, and end on Friday, August 7, 2015 (two weeks before classes begin).  With approval from their supervisor, full time employees may work four nine-hour days and one four-hour day with the remaining ½ day off per week or employees may choose to work four ten-hour days with one full day off per week. Full-time employees are expected to work 40 hours per week.  Lunch breaks do not count as part of the work day.  The supervisor must approve flex-time work schedules and ensure adequate coverage during regular hours of operation. Supervisors must revise work schedules in MyTime.

  • With the support and leadership of the Staff Advisory Council, Summer Jeans on Friday is now  Jeans on Fridays, Year Round!! .
  • UMW Holiday Schedule Clarification:  The Governor’s holiday message of November 13, 2014 announced holidays already scheduled. No additional holidays were granted at that time.
