Use these resources when adopting an alternative workweek (AWW) in a dental practice to ensure all details are met and properly reported to the Department of Industrial Relations. Includes checklist, templates and samples for use during AWW implementation.

Note: Although adopting an alternative workweek schedule can reduce overtime costs, it also greatly limits an employer’s scheduling flexibility and therefore is best suited for employers who typically have regular working hours that rarely need to change.
