An employee with a compressed work schedule can complete a standard 35–40-hour workweek in less than five days. A full-time employee, for example, may work four 8-10-hour days rather than five 8-hour days.
This option is more readily used for non-exempt employees who have a set number of maximum work hours, although it is not ruled out for monthly paid employees who work more than 30 hours per week. Non-exempt employees who agree to a truncated workweek are typically required to be paid overtime for all hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek.
