Support Staff Policies & Procedures

Support Staff Policy for Rest Periods


Applies to: Regular and temporary University support staff 

Purpose: Employees are permitted one rest period not to exceed 15 minutes during each half-day (four hours) of work. Rest periods are scheduled by the supervisor and are to be taken at a time and in a manner that does not interfere with the efficiency of the work unit. The rest period is intended to be a recess which is preceded and followed by an extended work period; thus, it may not be used to cover late arrival to work nor early departure, to extend the lunch period, nor may it be accumulated if not taken.
