Guidance for City of Eugene Work

Alternative work schedules 

The City is making alternate work schedules available to individuals who have job functions that support an alternative work schedule while also ensuring departments can deliver essential services. This alternative creates an avenue for recommended physical distancing and also helps you balance the needs of your home and family during this time.  Alternative assignments may also be available related to supporting the work-group or assisting with the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Please review Guide for Coding Your Time for information related to reporting your time. 


Reduced Work Schedule 

Employees may request (from supervisor) to have their regularly scheduled work hours temporarily reduced. Impact to accruals is based on City administrative regulations or union contract.   


Flexible/Staggered Work Hours 

Employees may request (from supervisor) to temporarily work non-traditional hours including split shifts and weekend work (i.e. a schedule that is different from the traditional 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday).  


Alternative Assignments 

It could happen that you might be asked to help provide essential services due to high absenteeism. In that case, you will receive the necessary training.
