§ 36-3.1-4. Policy.
It is the policy of the state to offer alternative working schedules to state employees, thereby enabling the appointing authority to allow for flexitime, compressed workweeks, job sharing, permanent part-time, and other alternative work plans, provided work schedule changes allow the maintaining of adequate work coverage and service to the public, in an effort to reduce commuter congestion, conserve energy, increase employee morale, increase productivity, and reduce tardiness and absenteeism. Any alternative work plans to insure compliance shall be jointly agreed to by the appointing authority and the certified bargaining representative.
