Standard Work Day

The College has a standard work day with two options for most Classified and NTP employees working 37.5 hours per week: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., both with a one hour lunch period. It is not permissible to take lunch at the end of the day and leave early, nor is it permissible to take only a ½ hour lunch to shorten the work day. A student, employee or member of the public should always be able to contact a College office until at least 4:30 p.m. Where work demands are better served by a non-standard schedule, different arrangements may be made through consultation with Human Resources.


Depending upon the type of position that you hold you will either be required to keep a paper timesheet or a Kronos timesheet. Most employees will record their time in Kronos. Timesheets are kept on a daily basis with actual hours worked indicated. Timesheets cover a two-week period. As a public institution, the college must be able to demonstrate that employees are paid for services rendered. Completion of timesheet records of attendance and leave use meet a basic audit standard and must be kept up to date. Timely completion and approval of timesheets is expected of all employees. Failure to submit time sheets as required may result in withholding of pay.
