Date Revised: 07/09

Many departments operate 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. The normal work week for full-time employees is 40 hours, measured from 12:01 a.m. Sunday through midnight the following Saturday.  The normal work week for UAB Hospital employees begins on Sunday at 7:00 a.m. and ends the following Sunday at 6:59 a.m.  Changes to departmental work schedules will be announced to give employees as much advance notice as possible. Employees are expected to report to work on time daily and to remain on the job throughout their regular work hours.

Employees having an urgent reason for leaving must have permission from the supervisor or department head.
