CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO.18

Meeting Date: September 12, 2000

Subject/Title: Work Hours

Submitted by: Patti Standley, Human Resources Manager

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution establishing Council/Administrative Policy No. 20-11, Work Hours.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
Through discussion with the Miscellaneous Office Bargaining Unit, staff discovered that the City of Brentwood does not have a general policy regarding Work Hours for City staff. A general policy is important in that it provides general guidelines and definitions as defined by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). 

The policy provides information regarding normal business hours, guidelines for a work period and a workday.

As stated in the policy, provisions of the policy are subject to the terms and conditions of appropriate memorandum of understanding.

Section 1: PURPOSE

The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance in understanding the hours of work of regular classified positions, and to provide guidelines in the determination of work hours for non-sworn employees of the City of Brentwood. 

The provisions of this policy are subject to the terms and conditions of appropriate memorandum of understanding.

Section 2: BUSINESS HOURS

Generally, the City of Brentwood conducts business during normal business hours, which are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, departments and their divisions may vary from these hours and days relative to the services they provide to the citizens of Brentwood.

Section 3: WORK PERIOD

The work period is an established and regularly recurring period of work which, under the terms of the FLSA, cannot be less than 7 consecutive days nor more than 28 consecutive days. Except for this limitation, the work period can be of any length, and it need not coincide with the duty cycle or pay period or with a particular day of the week or hour of the day. Once the beginning and ending time of an employee’s work period is established, however, it remains fixed regardless of how many hours are worked within the period. The beginning and ending of the work period may be changed, provided that this change is intended to be permanent and is not designed to evade overtime compensation.

Section 4: WORKDAY 

A workday shall be the time worked within a designated 24-hour period (12:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.) such that an employee performs his/her duties in accordance with the duty cycle established by his/her department. 

RESOLUTION NO.

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BRENTWOOD APPROVING COUNCIL/ADMINISTRATIVE POLICY NO. 20-11, WORK HOURS

WHEREAS, staff recognized the lack of a general policy defining work hours, and

WHEREAS, staff met and conferred with affected employee units and groups to discuss and prepare Council/Administrative Policy No. 20-11, Work Hours, and

WHEREAS, the general policy provides guidelines and definitions as specified by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the City Council of the City of Brentwood, approves Council/Administrative Policy No. 20-11, Work Hours, effective September 1, 2000.

PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED by the City Council of the City of Brentwood at a regular meeting held on September 12, 2000 by the following vote:
