A flexible work schedule is a type of flexible work arrangement that allows employees to vary the starting and stopping times of their work day depending on their differing needs. Sometimes called “flextime” or “flexitime,” this flexible work arrangement focuses exclusively on the work schedule and does not alter the location of work or the total number of hours worked.
