Amazon is Testing a 30-Hour Work Week for Some Employees

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:

A few lucky Amazon.com employees will soon get to have what so many workers only dream of: a shorter work week. [1]

The company is getting ready to launch a program that will have a few technical teams made up of employees who work just 30 hours a week, yet they will be salaried and will receive the same benefits as traditional 40-hour workers. Employees on the part-time team will make about 75% of what full-time Amazon workers make.

The Affordable Care Act requires companies to offer benefits to employees working more than 29 hours a week.

Currently, both part-time and full-time Amazon employees receive the same benefits. However, the pilot program would differ in that an entire team, including managers, would work fewer hours. [2]

In an Amazon posting on Eventbrite.com for an informational seminar, the company said:

“We want to create a work environment that is tailored to a reduced schedule and still fosters success and career growth. This initiative was created with Amazon’s diverse workforce in mind and the realization that the traditional full-time schedule may not be a ‘one size fits all’ model.”
