AAUP-PSU Contract Draft Version 3 PSU Proposal Date:____________ Time:____________ Letter of Agreement Academic Professionals– Flexible Work Schedules and Wage and Hour Law Training The purpose of this agreement is to (1) confirm, clarify and promote the availability of flexible work schedules for Academic Professional staff members; (2) educate administrators in the application of wage and hour law as it particularly applies to academic professionals who travel on university business and /or work evenings and weekends. (1) Promote the Availability of Flexible Work Schedules It has been the intention at PSU to support the request for flexible work schedules for academic professional staff members throughout the university. Administrators of Academic Professionals are responsible for the work schedules in their units. They have the discretion to consider flexing employee schedules when requested and if suitable for positions in their area. In many cases flexible work schedules may be a positive option benefiting the Academic Professional and the department; however, in some cases it may not be practical. Definition of a flexible work schedule: the established working hours to be followed by an employee for an agreed upon period of time that is different than the standard 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday schedule. To request a flexible work schedule: Employees interested in flexible work schedules should make a request in writing to their supervisor. For more information about flexible work schedules including other requirements, suitability and the approval process, please see the HR website at www.hrc.pdx.edu. (2) Training Administrators in the Application of Wage and Hour Law During the 2005-2006 fiscal year the Human Resources department will develop and conduct training for administrators of Academic Professionals to promote the availability of flexible scheduling for their areas. In addition, the training will cover compliance requirements of federal and state wage and hour law and other contractual obligations as it pertains to employees when they travel for university business, work evenings and/or work weekends. This is in an effort to educate administrators of Academic Professionals and Academic Professionals themselves about proper reporting through university time sheets and roster forms, and guide the consistent handling of these procedures across all units with Academic Professionals throughout the university.
