PART 1:  EXEMPT EMPLOYEES


All exempt (salaried) staff employed at a 1.0 FTE (full time equivalent) will maintain a standard work schedule, as approved by the supervisor, with a minimum of 40 scheduled work hours per week. The standard work schedule will typically align with the Standard Business Hour Schedule as provided in ARP 14.05, but may be adjusted to meet the needs of the specific unit and its constituents.  Faculty work hours are addressed in ARP 6.86.

 

PART 2: NON-EXEMPT EMPLOYEES


The work schedules for all non-exempt (hourly) employees, whether covered by the collective bargaining agreement or not, will be governed by the terms of the NMSU-AFSCME collective bargaining agreement.

 

PART 3: UNPAID MEAL PERIODS – REST BREAKS


A normal work day consists of 8 hours of work, with a minimum of one-half hour and a maximum of 1 hour of unpaid non-work time granted for a meal period. Periods of less than one hour meal time and specific eating on the job arrangements must be approved by the department head or director. A paid 15-minute break period is allowed during each consecutive 4-hour work period. Non usage of break periods may not be used to make up time spent away from work. Break times may not be accumulated nor used in conjunction with the meal period or start or end of the work day/shift.
