The standard work week is either 35 or 40 hours, depending on your position and the area in which you work. Your start time and end of day should be discussed with your supervisor. Most areas operate either 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. or 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. The scheduled work week may be varied by the University to allow for summer hours, to meet emergencies or during unusual situations.

Summer hours start on the first Monday of June in each year and continue for 13 weeks. For employees who normally work 35 hours per week, summer hours are reduced to 32.5 hours per week.

All employees are permitted a 20-minute break during the first half of each work day or shift, at a time scheduled or approved by the Department Head.

Recognizing the varied demands placed on employees’ time, Memorial has established a flextime policy. Employees may, at the discretion of their supervisor, apply to vary their working hours. To view the University’s flextime policy please visit http://www.mun.ca/policy/site.
