Flextime is an alternative to traditional work hours for employees. Instead of the typical 9 AM to 5 PM schedule that most employees follow, those working in flextime are allowed more freedom over their starting and ending times. Under flextime, there are usually a set of core hours that employees must be present for and they must usually still work a minimum number of hours per week, possibly 40. Flextime is just one method of employing flexible scheduling, some others being summer hours and compressed workweek. There is great variance in the way different organizations handle flextime and other flexible scheduling strategies.
