WVU-HR-14 Flextime Guidelines Policy


To outline the means by which West Virginia University, in accordance with WV Code 18B-7-9, allows employees to work hours outside of the unit or University business hours.


All West Virginia University employees, including those on the regional campuses, are eligible for flexible hour scheduling under this policy.


Each unit establishes flextime schedules in cooperation with the respective dean or director. The employee may initiate a request for a flextime schedule; the immediate supervisor must authorize or deny the request based upon the operational needs of the unit.

Employees on flextime schedules are required to work the proper number of hours during the week, consistent with their position full time equivalency (FTE).


Additional information regarding this policy can be obtained in the Flextime guidelines.


The supervisor is responsible for determining if flextime is appropriate for his/her unit and for which positions. The Employee Relations Unit in the Department of Human Resources, at 293-5700 or P.O. Box 6640, is available to answer questions or provide additional information regarding this policy.


The responsibility for interpretation of this policy rests with the Director of Human Resources, West Virginia University.
