Work Schedule Options - Short Term

This can be used to reduce a full-time employee’s full-time work schedule (to not less than half-time) for no more than one third of the employee’s work year. This option provides the same level of benefits as BR status except vacation/sick-time are at the full time accrual but is a temporary arrangement that can be used once each year. All full-time regular employees are eligible for a Mutual Reduction of Work Schedule.

For faculty and professional employees with less than a 12-month work year, the schedule reduction can have a more than proportional impact on the employee’s monthly salary because of the normal spreading of the salary over 12 months. The Mutual Reduction of Work Schedule Form can be downloaded here (PDF).
