NOVA Classified Employee Handbook provides guidance regarding work schedules, including telecommuting, and breaks for Classified Non-exempt employees as well as Wage/Hourly and Work-Study employees. For your information, these policies include the following:

For Classified Non-exempt Employees: (Classified Handbook, chapters 6 Work Hours; Chapter 7 Leave Benefits; Reporting Absences and Tardiness, chapter 7, page 9).

  • Employee work schedules, in the assigned workplace and/or in alternate work locations, are established by the immediate supervisor.
  • Full-time employees scheduled to work at least six consecutive hours must be afforded a lunch period (meal break) per day, as determined by the immediate supervisor.
  • The college’s established public service hours are 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Consideration must be given to assure that all offices are covered during these hours.

For Wage/Hourly and Work-Study Employees:

  • Part-time employees are restricted to 1500 work hours in a 12-month period. This averages to approximately 30 hours per week.
  • Part-time employees scheduled to work six hours or more per day, must be afforded a 30 minute lunch period (meal break) per day. The supervisor is responsible for including this break into the work schedule and for ensuring that the break is taken sometime during the middle of the work day (the break is not to be added to the beginning or the end of the scheduled shift).
  • The college’s established public service hours are 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Consideration must be given to assure that all offices are covered during these hours.
