Sample Alternative Work Schedule Agreement

[Enterprises] proposes the alternative work week scheduled regularly as follows: [indicate the calendar, including the days of the week and the exact hours of the day]. [Indicate benefits for employees of an alternative work week, for example. B more days off per week, more time for family, etc.] Without your agreement to this proposal, [companies] will generally not allow alternative schedules of more than eight hours of work per day, as this would require [companies] to lead to an increase in the daily costs of overtime. If the proposed schedule is adopted, employees of the [indicate work unit] will only be entitled to overtime pay for work that goes beyond the scheduled time, and not after eight hours in a day. The proposed schedule affects your benefits as follows: [Indicate details of any changes; for example. B consequences for the delimitation or use of paid leave]. All obligations and responsibilities of the employee as well as the terms and conditions of employment of the company remain unchanged, except those expressly modified by this agreement. Any failure by the worker to comply with this agreement may lead to the modification or termination of the flexible working agreement established in this agreement. [Note: You can use this form so that employees can choose their schedules after a successful election.] ___ I am voting in favour of adopting the alternative work week described above. I understand that if this timetable is adopted by a vote of two-thirds of the workers concerned, I am not entitled to the payment of daily overtime, unless I work beyond this timetable. [If the company offered a menu with calendar options, add the following language:] The employee must choose his new calendar from the various calendar options approved by secret ballot by checking one of the following statements: 1. One and a half times.

Staff have one and a half hours to work more than 40 hours per week or beyond the set schedule, up to 12 hours per day. In this special series on alternative work weeks, we looked in detail at how employers can manage daily overtime needs using alternative work weeks such as 4/10 hours. In Parts 1 and 2, we discussed the detailed rules that apply to setting up another work week program, and last month we took you to Part 3 through the steps to follow to dismantle one. This month, in the fourth and final instalment, we are providing three forms – a sample proposal, a ballot and an agreement – that will allow you to simplify the alternative adoption process during the work week. [Company] will endeavor to find a work plan that does not exceed eight hours per day for each employee who is entitled to vote on this proposal but who will not be able to work on a schedule established by the election. [The Company] may also provide, at its discretion, a work plan not exceeding eight hours per day to accommodate each employee recruited after the election and unable to work an alternative schedule that was set following the election. [The Company] will also consider any reasonable alternative means available to address an employee`s religious beliefs or customs that are contrary to an adopted alternative work schedule, as provided for by law. . . .
