Any changes to a basic work plan must be discussed and approved with an individual`s supervisor. A flexible work schedule includes working days with basic working hours and flexible hours. Basic hours are the periods set during the day when all employees must be in the workplace. Currently, these hours are 9 .m to 2 hours.m. Flexible hours are the part of the workday when employees can choose their arrival and departure time. Currently, for us, these hours are between 6 .m. and 6 p.m.m. This flexible work plan helps staff balance work and family life with personal responsibilities. For USDA-NRCS employees, different options are available for personal work schedules.
Options include flexible worktops and telecommuting. / Information on flexible hours and combined telework schedules are fixed work schedules, but allow full-time workers to meet the basic work needs of 80 hours per week in less than 10 days. Telework can be a reflection when it comes to providing appropriate accommodations for disabled workers and meeting the short-term needs of agencies or workers. Short-term applications could include the ability for an employee to telework, while the employee is recovering from a minor injury that impairs mobility or while working on a specific work-related project with identifiable timelines and benefits. Participation in a telework agreement is not a worker`s right. A staff member may participate in the program if the supervisor or the appropriate builder decides that the tasks of the staff are suitable for work outside the site.
