Working hours for technical and administrative staff
Full-time working hours for technical and administrative staff are eight hours a day, Monday–Friday, with the exception of public holidays.
Lunch is not included in working hours. You are required to take a lunch break of at least 30 minutes so that you work for no longer than 6 hours at a time.
For those who work part-time, normal working hours should be in proportion to the number of hours you work.
Technical and administrative staff are covered by the flexitime agreement. You are responsible for registering your working hours.
Please note that teaching staff are not covered by the flexitime agreement.
If you are unsure whether you are covered by a specific agreement on working hours, please contact your line manager or human resources officer.
Technical and administrative staff who are covered by the flexitime agreement get a day off on ‘squeeze days’ – days between a public holiday and a weekend. Working hours are also reduced on the day before certain public holidays.
Please note that teaching staff do not get a day off on squeeze days. Neither do teaching staff work reduced hours the day before a public holiday.
Working hours for teaching staff
Teaching staff are to plan their annual working hours in consultation with their line manager on a duties plan. There are separate rules on working hours for teaching staff.
Contact your line manager or the human resources officer within your department/faculty or equivalent.
