Alternative worker schedules.
NIOSH 1981 Oct; :1-65
Lieb, Lefkowitz and Associates, a small business with offices in Washington, D.C., Columbus, South Carolina, and Albany, New York, sets out in this report information on use of alternative work schedules in the United States. The report first provides definitions of work schedules differing from the standard 5-day, 40-hour diurnal workweek, including variations of flexitime and compressed workweeks, temporary and permanent reductions in work hours, and flexible work life options. It then identifies, where data are available, the industrial settings and the occupations within industries where alternative work scheduled are used and the number of workers engaged in each type of alternative schedule.
