In the midst of a national labor shortage, employers recruiting from a shrinking pool of potential employees are looking for ways to gain a competitive edge over other employers. What’s a better job perk than having every Friday off?
Companies nationwide, including an Ohio construction and real estate company, are beginning to implement 4-day work weeks. Employees still work 40 hours per week, but for 10 hours per day for 4 days (also known as “4 10’s”). Employees for the company usually worked from 7 AM to 6 PM Monday-Thursday, with Fridays off. But before employers implement a shortened week, they should consider their work force, the nature of their operations, and applicable state and federal law.
