State Alternative Work Schedule Manual.
Long, Marion C.; Post, Susan W.
During recent years, there has been increasing interest within both the public and private sectors in the use of alternative work schedules. While a sizable body of literature exists on the use of work scheduling variations among private employers, there is a dearth of information concerning the extent and impact of alternative work schedules in state government. This manual was created in an effort to fill that gap. The manual is the result of a comprehensive survey of state personnel departments and other state agencies to determine the extent and scope of alternative work schedule arrangements in state government. The manual includes, on a state-by-state basis, information on flexible work hours, compressed workweeks, permanent parttime employment, job sharing, transition retirement, and voluntary time-income trade-offs. It provides both an overview of activities undertaken on a statewide basis and concise, detailed summaries of programs in selected agencies within state governments. (Because of space limitations, every agency surveyed in every state is not included; however, an attempt has been made to include representative samples of the types of programs available in each state.)
