Only regular, non-represented employees (including limited-term employees), and postdoctoral employees can work part-time.
A part-time schedule covers specific circumstances and can be used during a limited time period. For example, you can work part-time if you need time for:
Caring for a sick dependent
Continuing your education
Taking care of personal and family needs
Phasing into retirement
Other circumstances (subject to manager’s approval)
Working part-time affects your benefits, pay, vacation and holiday accrual, and medical plan coverage costs. Before you make the change, be sure you understand what switching to a part-time schedule will mean for you. Contact HR Solutions if you have questions.
An Extended Work Week (EWW) may be authorized if warranted by Sandia’s business needs. EWW is offered to full-time, exempt employees below the director level.
You must be on a standard schedule, have a Flextime balance of 60 hours, and work five hours over your regularly scheduled hours per week before EWW is considered. EWW must be approved in advance by your Manager, Senior Manager, and your Director. After management pre-approval, you must submit the EWW eform to obtain all documented approvals.
If approved, EWW pays you straight time, in addition to your base salary, for the eligible hours worked under EWW.
Managers may approve alternate work schedules when they meet Sandia’s business needs and adhere to our policies. Represented employees should refer to their respective collective bargaining agreements regarding work schedules.
