Flexibility Options

Permanent Part-Time:
Simple, this is a part-time job for a permanent assignment occasionally with benefits but always without the 40 hour work week.

Flexible Schedule:
Flexible schedules can be established up on a daily or a permanent basis. Daily flex hours affords employees flexibility each day to adjust their start and ending times as needed, usually around set core hours. For example, if core hours are 10am to 3pm, an employee could work 6am to 3pm or 10am to 7pm.

Job Sharing:

Two people sharing one job whose combined work hours equal 40 hours per week. There are essentially two ways to do job sharing.
1) each person is equally qualified and responsible for the job doing the same duties as their counterpart ensuring complete coverage
2) each person is uniquely qualified for the job taking on different duties as their counterpart. The idea here is that the sum is greater than the whole.

Working from a home office or remote location some or all hours of a traditional work week.

Contract Work:
Includes temporary positions accepted at the discretion of the contract employee. Pay is usually higher because employers reduce the overhead required by a long-term employee and the schedule is flexible based on the contract employees own limitations.

Condensed Work Week:
Total work hours will equal 40 hours per week however, the employee will work fewer but longer days. For example, an employee may work four 10 hour days with three days off during the week instead of the traditional two day weekend.
