For summer 2023, the four-day workweek program shall be in effect during the period of Monday, June 12  through Friday, Aug. 11  excluding the workweeks that include Juneteenth (observed on Monday, June 19), and Independence Day (observed on Tuesday, July 4).  For those two holiday weeks, staff shall have four regular (unextended) workdays (a copy of the CUNY 2023-2024 holiday calendar will follow in the near future).

Apart from the two holiday weeks, the work day for full-time clerical, administrative, and non-teaching instructional staff employees will be 8¾ hours plus 45 minutes for lunch, Monday through Thursday (i.e., the workday will begin at 8:00am and end at 5:30pm, with a lunch break from noon to 12:45pm, Monday through Thursday with Fridays off).

For the duration of the summer four-day workweek program, there will be a requirement to work a minimum of two days onsite for those employees who are eligible and approved to work a hybrid schedule. Administrators may approve an increase to the onsite work requirement in departments within their division if required or necessary to ensure appropriate staffing during peak times or scheduled events.

Employees who do not wish to–or are unable to–work the extended hours during the aforementioned weeks as described above shall be given the option of working four regular workdays (i.e., 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Thursday) and charge the fifth day (Friday) to annual leave. All such requests shall be submitted to using the online form, with supervisor’s approval, by Friday, June 9. Employees must have an annual leave balance of seven days in order to be eligible to waive the summer hour work schedule. As a reminder, all Public Safety, Buildings and Grounds and 220 Titles are exempt from participating and will remain on their normal Monday through Sunday shifts.
