    6. Other Factors that Impact Choices • Other Factors that impact AWS administration • Unions and negotiations • Statutory or regulatory rules or limitations • OPM Guidance (Handbook on Alternative Work Schedules) • Factors unique to the organization • Culture • Types of workers/ work • Agency policies and procedures • Timekeeping, payroll & recordkeeping systems • Geography

    7. Understanding the AWS Program Alternative Work Schedules - 2 Types • Flexible Work Schedules • Compressed Work Schedules

    8. FLEXIBLE WORK SCHEDULES

    9. Flexible Work Schedules • Various work schedule arrangements in which fixed work schedules are replaced by a working day composed of two types of time -- • core hours, and • flexible time bands.

    10. Types of Flexible Work Schedules • Flexitour • Gliding schedule • Variable day or variable week • Maxiflex (including a “flexible 5-4/9”)

    11. Flexible Work Schedules Key Features • Core time - designated periods when employees must be present for work. • Flexible time bands - periods of time when employees may choose time of arrival and departure. • Tour of Duty - Outer limits set by the agency for completing the 80-hour basic work requirement. • Credit Hours - Excess hours employees may elect to work to vary the length of a workday or workweek. (Optional.)

    12. COMPRESSED WORK SCHEDULES

    13. Compressed Work Schedules Defined A fixed work schedule that enables an employee to complete the basic work requirement (80 hours) in less than 10 workdays in a biweekly period.

    14. Types of Compressed Work Schedules • 4 - ten hour days per week • 5-4/9 • 3-day workweek (13 hours & 20 minutes per day for 3 days) Note: These are all fixed schedules.

    15. Compressed Work Schedules Key Features • Always fixed schedules. • Overtime is paid only for hours worked in excess of the CWS--not for 8/40. • Holiday and Sunday premium hours = no. of scheduled non-overtime hours. • 80-Hour biweekly work requirement scheduled in less than 10 workdays. (For full-timers.) • No credit hours. • May not be imposed unless negotiated or voted in.

    16. AWS Reference Sources • OPM Web Site - www.opm.gov • Handbook on Alternative Work Schedules (12/96) • LMR Guidance Bulletin “Negotiating Flexible and Compressed Work Schedules” (7/95) • United States Code • 5 U.S.C. 6120 through 6133 • Code of Federal Regulations • 5 CFR 610.401 through 610.408

    17. Selection & Implementation • Choose AWS plan • FWS • CWS • Both Options • Implementation--have a written plan • Negotiate if necessary • Communicate Rules • Use trial period and test group • Adjustments & Final Implementation

    18. Holiday hours & pay In lieu of holidays Sunday pay Night pay Facility closures Travel time issues Training Timekeeping Special Challenges

    19. A Real Challenge! • Credit hours • FWS only • Not for travel time • Not for scheduled training • Cannot be converted to pay • Part-timers? • Restrictions by agency • See our new handout on credit hours
