(a) The following work options allowed State employees are to be included in the program administered under this Article:

(1) Flexible work hours as established by the State Human Resources Commission;

(2) Job sharing as permitted by the State Human Resources Commission;

(3) Permanent part-time positions as established under the North Carolina Human Resources Act.

(b) The State Human Resources Commission shall examine the present options listed in subsection (a) of this section available to State employees and other options the State Human Resources Commission may make available for a comprehensive program of work options for State employees. The State Human Resources Commission shall, with the concurrence of the agency, determine the need for additional permanent part-time positions within State Government and how increased use of these positions could benefit employee morale and productivity as well as increase the use of the available labor force. None of the provisions of this Article shall be administered to reduce the total number of hours per day a State office normally is open to serve the public. (1981, c. 917, s. 1; 2013-382, s. 9.1(c).)
