Job Sharing

(Act 1461 0f 2001, Arkansas Code Ann. §21-5-203, as amended) 

Arkansas law allows job sharing, a form of employment in which two people arrange their work hours in a way that covers a single, regular, full-time salaried position. The combined number of hours worked by the two part-time employees cannot exceed the number of hours a full-time employee would work in the same position (usually 40 hours per week). Both employees must be part-time and both must use the position in the same way. For example, if the position is classified as a secretary, both employees must perform secretarial duties. Hourly positions may also be shared.
