Summer Fridays

The conditions covering the summer Fridays are as follows:

  1. Where the work of the department requires the attendance of some staff on that day, the summer Friday should be rescheduled, preferably to the following Monday.
  2. When a staff member takes vacation during the summer schedule, any Friday that falls into the vacation period will not count as a "vacation" day.
  3. When it is necessary for a staff member to work on a summer Friday morning, compensating time off or overtime pay on a straight time basis should be arranged. When it is necessary to work on a summer Friday afternoon, compensating time off on a straight time basis, or overtime paid on a time-and-one-half basis should be granted.
