Work schedules for employees of Lake Michigan College (the College) will be designed to meet the needs of the department and the College in providing readily available, effective service for students, co-workers, and the community. Days and hours of work may be changed at any time to meet department or College needs; when this is necessary, every effort will be made to provide at least 2-weeks’ notice.

The work week is defined as Sunday through Saturday.

Normal business days/hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. However, the nature of certain departments’ work or services may require hours of operation outside of normal business hours. In addition, the College may modify its normal business days/hours outside of the academic year (e.g., close on Fridays.)

Full-time employees are regularly scheduled to work 40 hours per week. Full-time employees are to typically work at least 8 hours during normal business days/hours unless a flexible scheduling request is granted.

Employees who are not exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“classified employee”) are required to accurately record all hours worked using the College’s time-keeping system. Hours worked in excess of a classified employee’s scheduled work day or workweek require advance supervisory approval.
