Compressed working week/Compressed hours
An employee may work the same number of weekly working hours, compressed into a shorter period of time. For example, a 35 hours week may be worked at a rate of 8.75 hours per day for 4 days instead of 7 hours for 5 days. Changes to salary are not required but public holidays, treatment of hours beyond the contract hours (e.g. potential for claim for overtime) and leave arrangements need to be taken into consideration.
A full-time role is undertaken by two or more employees who are paid on a part time basis for the hours they work. Each employee is paid and earns leave entitlements proportionate to the part of the role they complete. They can be at the same level or paired vertically.
A regular work pattern where you work fewer than full time hours. The days worked can be varied by mutual agreement.
Allow shift workers to trade shifts with each other, enabling flexibility to meet both work and personal needs, without sacrificing one or another.
A type of shift work schedule where a person’s work day is split into two or more parts (such as morning and evening) separated by more than the normal periods of time off (as for lunch).
A flexible working solution when a person needs to change the way they do their role on a longer-term basis. This could be because of caring responsibilities, preparing to retire, study or career transition commitments, or health reasons or a disability.
