Summer Hours

Summer hours are in effect beginning Monday next following Memorial Day for a period of ten (10) weeks in accordance with the administrative calendar. Most importantly, the College and all of its offices will remain open until 4 p.m. and certain offices which provide direct student services may remain open later. No exceptions will be made for offices wishing to close at 3:30 p.m.

Staff of all offices must be assigned flexibly to ensure that the 4 p.m. or later closing time is observed.

Summer hours are a seven-hour workday with a one-half hour lunch resulting in departure from campus one hour earlier than is normal during the regular academic year. This should not result in any conflict between NTP and Classified staff as to who leaves early and who stays later. Supervisors in each office should consult with Human Resources where the potential for any such problem exists.

Please remember; all offices must remain open until 4 p.m. The choice of schedule is 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. unless otherwise specified by the responsible Vice President.

Physical Plant, Central Receiving and Public Safety staff will be granted twenty (20) hours off during this period and may use these hours up until November 30.

The following is provided to remind you of the record keeping requirements and procedures which were implemented in association with this employee benefit:

  • Eligible Classified and Non-Teaching Professional employees currently scheduled for a 5-day, 37 ½ hour work week will be required to work 35 hours per week and will reduce their lunch period from one hour to one-half hour. Bear in mind that the actual schedule for classified staff will be subject to coordination with the schedules of NTP office staff.
  • Timesheets should reflect actual hours worked. During the time of "Summer Hours", employees will continue to accrue sick leave and vacation leave as though they were working 37 ½ hours. Therefore, charges to these leave accrual categories must be made on the basis of a normal 37 ½ hour work week and employees must make charges to such above categories to account for a full 7 ½ hour workday. For example, if an employee works for 3 ½ hours and covers the balance of the day with leave, 4 hours must be charged.
  • Charges to personal leave, flex time and compensatory time may be made to reflect the 7 hour work day in effect during the period of "Summer Hours."
  • Excess time for eligible classified employees will be paid at overtime rate for work performed beyond 35 hours.
  • Excess time for eligible NTP employees will be paid at special assignment rate for work performed beyond 35 hours per week, and eligible NTP employees will be paid at overtime rate for work performed in excess of 40 hours.

Employees working less than 37 ½ hours per week (part-time) who have been appointed to temporary positions on a non-benefited basis will continue to be paid only for hours worked.
