Subject/Title: Work Hours
Submitted by: Patti Standley, Human Resources Manager
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Approve a Resolution establishing Council/Administrative Policy No. 20-11,
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
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
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.
