- Flexible Work Schedule– http://www.unlv.edu/sites/default/files/24/HR-FlexProcedures.pdfIt has been the practice of UNLV to allow the use of flexible work schedules where it is a viable work option, and based on the individual circumstances of an employee and the ability for the department to meet the work needs. UNLV recognizes how such work options have benefited employees when both operational and employee personal needs can be addressed. This flexibility is available to all full-time, regular, classified employees; faculty and professional staff as determined by the operational needs of the work group and upon approval of the appropriate supervisor.
