These guidelines form the basis for the procedure of stipulating individual work schedules for all employees in academic positions (TR staff) at OsloMet. Parties at the faculty level will use these guidelines as a basis for developing complementary local guidelines adapted to the individual faculty.
The general guidelines can be found in the OsloMet's employee handbook - follow the link at the top of the page. Here are some rules of thumb:
The work schedules can be divided into the following duties:
A 45 minute lesson is considered as a 1 hour lesson in the work schedule. For other assignments, the time is calculated hour by hour. Teaching activities are quantified using conversion factors.
Travelling in connection with internships/ other external assignments is calculated hour by hour when this takes place during normal working hours.
For other contributing factors that may produce an effect - see the guidelines.
The work schedules’ planning period runs from August 1 to July 31. The individual work schedules should usually be stipulated by June 1 each year.
Work schedules may be changed during the planning period if appropriate. Both the programme coordinator and the employee are responsible for addressing the need for changes to the other as quickly as possible.
In some cases, where there is an exceptional and time-limited need, it may be appropriate for the employer to impose overtime. This requires time tracking of working hours and overtime.
In the case of full or partial absence due to illness, all duties in the work schedule will usually be reduces accordingly.
