Hours of Work

The standard work week for state employees is 40 hours.

Agencies are responsible for designating the start and finish of the workweek so that overtime pay may be correctly calculated for non-exempt employees.

Most state offices are open and must be staffed from 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. However, work schedules may vary significantly based on agency operations (i.e. field offices, service to the public and clients, 24 hour institutions, etc.)

Agencies are responsible for scheduling each employee’s work hours, including any flex scheduling policies.


Agencies are encouraged to use flexible scheduling where possible to promote positive morale.
