Managing employee time is the federal supervisor’s first responsibility. Before you can even begin to think about how subordinates meet performance and conduct expectations, you first must make sure that they come to work and are on the job for a substantial amount of the 2,087 hours they’re being paid for.
America’s leading author about supervising federal employees gives federal supervisors both strategic and prescriptive guidance for optimizing the amount of productive time federal employees spend at work.
Starting with the basics on hours of work, the new 4th edition carries the supervisors through the rules and practicalities of what is and is not allowable during duty hours. Then it turns to overtime, examining the rules on when overtime is allowed and paid and looking at strategies for controlling overtime.
The book then shows federal supervisors the different work schedules with both rules and warnings about the use of alternate work schedules. Next, it looks at how to deal with issues of leave and attendance, including controlling leave abuse. Then, it closes with proven strategies and tactics for controlling absenteeism.
