Hours of work

40 hours of work per week will constitute a full-time workweek for all positions in the classified and unclassified civil service. Urban County government offices are normally open for business from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Each employee is assigned a work schedule and is expected to begin and end work according to the schedule. Generally, if employees are over six minutes late, they are considered tardy. An employee’s assigned schedule may be outside of normal business hours depending on the requirements of the position. To accommodate the needs of our city, changes to individual work schedules on either a short-term or a long-term basis may be required. Employees will be provided meal breaks and rest periods as required by law.
