Memo to Employees Regarding Approval of Alternative Workweek – Use this template to develop a memo to announce the start date of an approved AWW schedule for your practice.

Sample Letter: Accepted Alternative Workweek – Sample letter to provide to the Department of Industrial Relations within 30 days of the final election for AWW.

Secret Ballot for Alternative Workweek – Template for secret ballot election held to allow employees to vote on proposed alternative workweek schedule.
