CNMI government to implement 72-hour work schedule

The Torres administration announced on Thursday that it will implement a 72-hour work schedule beginning with the pay period that starts on June 23, 2019.

Under Gov. Ralph DLG Torres’ directive, business hours for departments and agencies under the Executive Branch will be closed during every “payday” Friday beginning on July 5, 2019 until further notice. The Office of Personnel Management has been directed to work with all departments and agencies to ensure that all civil, excepted and exempted service employees are properly notified and advised of the modified work schedule.

“This is a very difficult decision, but it is necessary in order to protect our government employees from other more drastic options that would have more severe impacts and to ensure that our government obligations and services remain stable,” said Torres.

“Financial recovery remains at the top of our efforts, so that we can eventually revert back to a normal 80-hour work schedule. Lt. Gov. Palacios and I appreciate all our government employees for their patience during these financial challenges and for their continued commitment to serve the people of the Marianas,” he added.
