Time & Attendance Home>At Work>Time & Attendance What you need to know Sandia’s standard workweek for full-time employees is 40 hours per week. At times, Sandia may ask you to work, or be available to work, outside your standard work schedule. When this happens, Sandia pays you based on the type of time – on-call, overtime, or shift work. In addition, lunch and rest breaks can help you better balance work and life demands during the workday. Table of contents Standard Work Hours The standard workweek for full-time employees is 40 hours per week (eight hours per day, five days per week). During this time, there are core hours when the majority of employees are working: New Mexico: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. California: Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Any work schedule that does not include these core hours requires director approval. Back to top chevron-up Taking Breaks Sandia work schedules include a 30-minute unpaid lunch period, typically between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. With your manager’s approval, you can take a 45- or 60-minute unpaid lunch period, as long as your start and stop times accommodate the number of hours you’re required to work each day. Non-exempt employees in California can also take a 10-minute paid rest period for every four hours worked. Back to top chevron-up On-Call Work Working on-call means you are ready and able to report for work within a reasonable time during a specified 24-hour period. When you work this type of a schedule, you are eligible for on-call pay. The number of required on-call hours is based on your work schedule. Within a 24-hour period, you must be on-call for a minimum of: 15 consecutive hours, if working the standard schedule 14 consecutive hours, if working a 9/80 schedule 13 hours, if working a 4/10 schedule 11 hours, if working a 12-hour schedule Your manager must approve and submit an on-call pay request form for you to be paid for working on-call hours. Back to top chevron-up Working Overtime Non-exempt employees are eligible for overtime. If you work more than 40 hours in a week, you must charge overtime. Your manager is responsible for scheduling and approving overtime pay based on Sandia’s business needs. Back to top chevron-up Shift Differential Sandia uses shift differential within organizations that support 24/7 operations and have first, second, and third working shifts to cover the 24-hour period. If you work a second or third shift in addition to your first shift, you are eligible for extra compensation, also known as a shift differential.
