Rice University Human Resources Policy No. 434-96

 

COMPRESSED WORK WEEK  

APPLIES TO ALL RICE UNIVERSITY STAFF  

A schedule that includes 40 work hours in fewer than five days out of seven (such as four ten-hour days) is called a compressed work week. Rice University encourages a compressed work week when it will achieve, maintain, or enhance excellent service and performance. Such schedules may also improve employee morale and assist the University in meeting requirements for employee trip reduction in compliance with the Clean Air Act. The department chair or supervisor, in consultation with the appropriate vice-president or dean in consultation with the Provost, and with review by Human Resources, will determine whether a job is suitable for a compressed work week schedule.
