1. "Flexible work schedule" means an eight-hour work day in which the    employee may vary the time of arrival and/or departure. A flexible work    schedule includes core time and a flexible band.  "Flexible time and flexible bands" mean the specific periods of the workday during which employees may opt to vary their arrival and departure times.

2. "Fixed shift" means a workday that establishes the employee's arrival    and departure times. These times are normally standardized and not  variable.

3. "Compressed work schedule" (CWS) means, in the case of a full time    employee, an 80-hour biweekly basic work requirement that is scheduled for  less than 10 workdays; and, in the case of a part time employee, a biweekly  basic work requirement of less than 80 hours that is scheduled for less than 10 workdays and that may require the employee to work more than 8 hours in a day.

a. "5-4-9" is an 80-hour biweekly basic work schedule that  includes five (5) workdays in one week and four (4) workdays in the other week of the pay period.

b. "4-40" is a 40-hour weekly basic work schedule that  includes four (4) workdays in one week.

4. "Credit hours" means those hours worked in excess of an employee's    basic work requirement in which an employee on a flexible work schedule elects to work so as to vary the length of a succeeding workday or  workweek.  The use of credit hours cannot be used in a pattern that represents a 4/40 schedule.
