As part of our effort to provide more robust and responsive service to our students and other members of the campus community, beginning January 3, 2017, Sonoma State University’s official business hours will be 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. This change in operational hours is in line with the priorities set by the President’s Cabinet and with the practice at most other campuses.
Please be reminded that all full-time employees should be scheduled to work eight hours which includes two 15-minute paid breaks. Said breaks are intended to break up the work day, providing rest mid-way through the morning and again mid-way through the afternoon. Breaks may not be combined to extend the lunch period nor accumulated to allow for an adjusted start or end time. That being said, the campus will continue to support consideration of flexible/alternative work schedules that meet both the campus operational needs and the individual employees’ personal request.
Scheduling adjustment options, with appropriate approval from Dean/Director/AVP, include:
· 30-minute lunch period
· Staggering start/end times (e.g. some employees start earlier than 8:00 and some stay later than 5:00), with all full-time employees scheduled for eight hours of work
Note: Employee(s) may be on an alternative work schedule which will continue to be an option with managers’ approval
