Alternative work schedule programs
Employee Reduction in Time (ERIT)
The Employee-Initiated Reduction In Time (ERIT) program is an optional tool that locations and organizational units may choose to implement as a cost savings resource. The ERIT program provides an opportunity for employees to voluntarily reduce their current appointment percentage and corresponding pay so that the university can achieve temporary salary savings. All career staff employees except Senior Management Group members are eligible to participate. Participation for exclusively represented employees is dependent upon agreement by the applicable union.

Work schedule changes
The objective of the alternate work schedule is to allow employees flexibility in scheduling their work hours based on departmental approval and subject to established terms and conditions. More information is available in HR Personnel Policies - Procedures 31 (pdf).
