Family Friendly New Mexico Recognizes Four Work Schedules Policies


Flexible work scheduling

 

Flexible work scheduling


Adjustable scheduling such as four ten-hour days or other schedules to accommodate personal commitments or conflicts. Employers that have implemented a flextime schedule often find it easier to retain their top performers while providing employees with the means to achieve a balanced life.

Job Sharing

 

Job Sharing

Job Sharing is when two or more part time employees share one full time position. 67% of managers and 94% of job sharers believe it has a positive impact on clients. It is great way to retain good employees; 87% of job sharers report that the ability to job share meant the difference between staying with a company or leaving (Pg 42, The job Share Project, 2011).

Telecommuting

 

Telecommuting

Telecommuting includes working from a remote location at least some of the time. Telecommuting is the new reality for many during the pandemic. In addition to some of the benefits of other flexible work arrangements, telecommuting is correlated with increased flexibility, increased performance, workplace satisfaction and economic savings.

Predictable scheduling

 

Predictable scheduling

Predictable scheduling encourages employers to provide at least two weeks notice of work schedules and/or premium pay for changes in work schedules made with short notice. When hourly workers have workplace flexibility, productivity increases and absenteeism decreases. Accommodating employees’ scheduling needs significantly reduced turnover.

Paid Personal Leave

Personal leave can be used when an employee (or their family member) is sick, for personal time off, for vacation, or professional development/education. Rather than making distinctions between personal time off and sick leave, more employers are combining all paid time off (PTO) for employees to use as they choose.

Paid Maternal/Paternity Leave

Paid Parental/Maternity/Paternity leave is employment-protected time off for mothers and fathers to allow them to bond with a new child, whether it is the birth of a new child, an adoption or foster child. Leave can usually be taken prior to the child’s arrival as well.

DID YOU KNOW? The U.S. is one of only about three countries in the world that does not guarantee paid leave for new parents?

Paid Family Leave

Paid family leave provides benefits to employees who need time off to take care of a child, a spouse, a parent or an adult child with a serious health condition, or who are ill or disabled.

  • Care for a sick family member
  • Bond with a new child (either through birth, adoption, or foster care)
  • Take care of family-related issues
