Time to Change those Business Hours Rules

Mike Broschinsky Agency Deadlines, Other News, Uncategorized

Back in 2008, rules from around state government were amended to accommodate “Working 4 Utah” — Governor Huntsman’s initiative to save energy by changing the work week to four ten-hour days.  With the passage of H.B. 328 (2011) and Governor Herbert’s directive to return to five eight-hour days with business hours from 8 AM to 5 PM beginning the first full pay period in September, agencies need to review their business hour rules once again.  Agencies should file any amendments necessary to return to a five-day work week as soon as possible.  Rules filed by 07/15/2011 will appear in the 08/01/2011 issue of the Bulletin and may be made effective on 09/07/2011.
