TI ME & AT TENDANCE
Be There or Be Square Our philosophy is this: When you are scheduled to be at work, we expect you to be at work. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Just because we are government doesn’t mean it has to be complicated.
BREAKS (ADULT RECESS—YAY!) Generally speaking, if you are in a full-time non-exempt (hourly) position, you are eligible for two 15-minute breaks – one to be used during each half of your workday. Your supervisor may also authorize a 30- or 60-minute meal break. REPORTING WORK TIME If you are in a non-exempt (hourly) position, you are expected to clock-in and clock-out each day. You may also be expected to clock-in and clock-out for your meal break. Be sure to ask your supervisor where and when you need to clock-in and clock-out and please don’t work any overtime unless your supervisor tells you it is okay beforehand. They get fussy about those kinds of things. If you are in an exempt (salaried) position, you are expected to record all of your exception time in the city’s timekeeping system. “Exception time” means all time off and all hours worked over 40 during your work week. Different requirements may apply to directors, senior managers and command staff.

WORK SCHEDULE How is your schedule determined? Your schedule depends on your position as well as the business needs of the department. In some cases, a flexible schedule that allows you to start or end your workday outside the standard 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday schedule is an option. Another option may be to compress your 40-hour workweek into four days. Again, the nature of your position and business needs will determine if these are options for you.
