Updated: April 2008

POLICY
It is organization policy that full-time, year-round employees work a regular schedule unless there is prior approval from the employees’ immediate supervisor or department manager. Examples for those working a 40 hour work week: employees who wish to begin work at 8 am work until 5 pm with one hour lunch break; employees who wish to begin work at 9 am work until 6 pm with one hour lunch break.

Every employees schedule should be reviewed by employees’ supervisor, to ensure that the needs of Maine Media are met. Temporary employees work schedule will be defined by the President, Provost, or department manager.

PROCEDURE
It is the supervisor’s responsibility to schedule rest and meal breaks. Should an employee need to leave the workstation for any reason during the scheduled shift, the supervisor must be notified.
