Primary Information

    The University’s core hours of business are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  However, there are some schools and organizations within Tufts four campuses that operate on different schedules over the seven day week. Read more about customary hours and exceptions to this standard schedule.
    Recording Hours Worked:

    The University is required by state and federal law to keep accurate records of hours worked by non-exempt employees including employees who have been categorized as salaried, non-exempt. Departments are responsible for maintaining attendance records for non-exempt and salaried, non-exempt staff and time off records including sick, personal, and vacation time for all employees. Records for exempt staff vacation, sick, and personal time should also be maintained.
    Each week, an authorized department staff member will enter the hours worked for non-exempt and salaried, non-exempt employees (staff, student workers, and temporary employees) in that department into the University’s Time Entry System. Access to this system is obtained through completion of an application and approval of the supervisor.
