Good news for civil servants.

Starting Friday, they will have a choice of flexible working hours - opting to come to work between 7.30am and 8.30am and leave between 4.30pm and 5.30pm on working days provided that the person has clocked in nine working hours.

A circular from the Public Services Department said the move was intended to provide the staff a balance between working hours and family time, was announced in a circular issued by it's director-general Datuk Seri Borhan Dolah.

The circular stated that the flexible working hours will be introduced in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya and all federal departments in Perlis, Perak, Selangor, Johor, Terengganu, Sabah and Sarawak.

“The pilot project will implement flexible office hours, during which the employee can arrive and return within a period of time, provided the period of one working day is fulfilled.

“We are introducing the pilot project at these departments first to see if it is effective and we will expand it to all other government agencies later,” stated Borhan in the circular.

According to The Star, the move is aimed at standardising the present four types of staggered working hours which were introduced by the PSD in 1998.

The circular on the new working hours stated that the civil servant can choose to come to work between 7.30am and 8.30am and leave between 4.30pm and 5.30pm on working days provided that the person has clocked in nine working hours.

The circular also said that the flexible working hours will be applied to all employees who work according to office hours.
