Section 6--Job Sharing/Splitting


A.  Purpose

Job sharing/job splitting provides employees with considerable work scheduling flexibility beyond normal part-time work.  It is expected to open opportunities for increased part-time work and provide humanitarian assistance to employees with special spousal care, child care, elder care, or other special needs.

Job sharing/job splitting is limited to two employees in a team.  The job sharers are expected to seek management assistance and approval in drawing up the job share plan so that the work will be properly divided.

In the administration and application of the article, all part-time employees shall be treated fairly and equitably in all aspects of personnel management consistent with law, governmentwide rule or regulation and the national agreement.

B. Definitions

Job sharing is a form of part-time employment in which the tours of duty of two employees are arranged in such a way as to cover a single full-time position.  Job sharing will be considered only if the traditional part-time employment is not practical or feasible.

Job splitting is a form of job sharing where the duties and functions of one full-time position are split to create two new positions, each staffed by a part-time employee. Job splitting will be considered only if the traditional part-time employment and job sharing is not practical or feasible.

C.
