Daylight saving time ends Sunday

Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday (Nov. 5), meaning campus clocks will have to "fall back" this weekend.
Individual departments are reminded that they are responsible for changing clocks in their offices, research laboratories and departmental spaces. Buildings and Grounds staff will ensure that clocks in public areas and outdoor clocks are changed.

In addition to changing clocks, the time change means that clerical, service and operations technical employees, police and firefighters who work the third shift on this date will work one hour longer than normally scheduled. For that shift only, employees typically working eight-hour shifts will work nine hours; and those who typically work a 12-hour shift will work 13 hours.
Employees must be paid overtime for the extra hour if that hour causes the total hours worked at the end of the week to exceed 40 hours.

If an employee requests the option of flexing the schedule, it is permissible as long as it is done within the same work week and the supervisor approves the request.

Employees on approved sick leave will be covered by the University's sick leave policy.

Supervisors and employees are encouraged to work together to meet both business and employee needs.
