    9 / 80 work schedule

    Good afternoon, the company I work for is considering going to a 9 / 80 work schedule. Do any of you out there have any hands on experience with this schedule? We are a commercial/industrial HVAC company in southeast Louisiana. We now work a normal 5/8 schedule( or as normal as HVAC gets ) Thanks for any feedback.

    Simply means that his company is looking at having him work 9 days to achieve 80 hours. Most cases the company will juggle Monday and Fridays off for employees. Usually what I have seen is that this is a means for a company to cut hours, the variable work day never seems to materialize. So really working 8 days at 8 hours and thus hours drop, usually see this tactic with non-union companies to cut hours. Unions, it can be totally different, and handled correctly to make everyone happy.

    It can all work out if your HR department can handle it properly and schedule everyone, especially those weird off days where you may work 4 hours or maybe 8 hours. It can get really complicated. It can work and has worked for many companies. My brother's company works him on a 9/80, but it was created to help cut back on overtime and paid time off expenses for the company. So it may hurt some guys who live for OT, but not so much for others.

    We work a 9 day fortnight. It's awesome, get a long weekend every second week. We get our full hours unless it's super quiet, which is rare.

    Agreed, it sounds like a way to not pay you overtime
