Hours of Operation
Cal Poly Pomona will transition to the 4/10 Summer Work Schedule, June 12, 2017 through August 25, 2017. All university offices will be open for campus business and operations from, Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., to serve students and the public--except during two work weeks (June 26 – June 30, 2017 and July 31 – August 4, 2017) when we will revert back to a 5 day/8 hour per day schedule. Effective Monday, August 28, 2017, the campus will return to the normal Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., work schedule.
The work schedule changes noted above will apply to all full-time, part-time, exempt and non-exempt employees of Cal Poly Pomona. In a 4/10 work schedule, the 40 hours will be accomplished by working 10 hours each day, Monday through Thursday. Friday will not be a regular work day for most campus employees.
Exempt from 4/10 Schedule
During the 4/10 Summer Work Schedule, the Kellogg House, Kellogg West, Children's Center, University Police Services, Los Olivos, and the residence halls may remain open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for operational reasons. Additional campus services requiring 24-hour coverage or extended service days and hours may be required to operate on Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday.
The university has identified several operational exceptions to the 4/10 that will be excluded from the schedule. Those managing areas that believe they should be considered for exclusion should submit their reasons for consideration to their respective divisional Vice Presidents and the President for approval. Only those work units requiring 24-hour coverage or extended service days/hours will continue to operate on Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday. All individuals, operations, departments, colleges, and divisions are encouraged to implement this schedule where operationally feasible.
Alternative Arrangement or Hardship Request
Any employee who believes that they are unable to comply with the 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. work schedule should talk to their manager and let them know as early as possible the reason(s) that working a 4/10 schedule may be a problem or difficult during the 4/10 work schedule, whether in part or for the entire summer. Your request may warrant management consideration for an alternative arrangement (including use of leave credits or dock option) or meet the criteria for a Hardship Exception Request (doc). Child care, eldercare, health issues, or physical limitations will be considered in determining the hardship request. Inconvenience alone will not be considered as a hardship exemption. The type of request depends on the situation, as some requests may be subject to Family Medical Leave (FML) which is requested on a separate form and employees should be encouraged to contact the Payroll/Leaves Coordinator for assistance. All requests are confidential and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
