Next Steps:

  • Supervisor and employee should have a conversation:
    • What “extras” does the employee do? (Committee Work, Groups, etc)
    • What extras are actual priorities for the employee?
    • What needs to change? (texts/emails/calls after hours, working during lunch, etc.)
    • What are the expectations for communication between the Supervisor and Employee?
    • How can you best partner for success during this transition?
  • Make sure to attend MyTime trainings.
  • Set up Outlook reminders for the beginning and the end of each day to remind you to clock in and out of MyTime.
  • If the employee needs an adjustment to their timesheet (ex. forgot to login) – request your Supervisor to make the adjustment as soon as possible to help avoid confusion at the end of the pay period.
  • Plan ahead -Consider a week or two trial run before the effective date, to see how this would work. Practice tracking hours on paper – where does employee need to adjust schedule?
    • This can provide a good snapshot of what a typical week really looks like.
    • This time may highlight areas that need process improvement.


  • Supervisors may adjust an employee’s schedule within a workweek to avoid or minimize overtime. (Example: employee works an extra four hours on Monday; you may reduce the employee’s work schedule on Friday by four hours so the employee does not work more than 40 hours during that workweek).
  • Each workweek stands alone in calculating regular and overtime hours worked.
  • UMW’s workweek is from 12:01 a.m. Monday through midnight on Sunday.
