A "flexible work arrangement" (FWA) is any one of a spectrum of work structures that alters the time and/or place that work gets done on a regular basis. The term includes (but is not limited to):
1. flexibility in the scheduling of hours worked, such as alternative work schedules (e.g., flex time and compressed workweeks), and arrangements regarding shift and breack schedules:
2. flexibility in the amount of hours worked, such as part-time work and job shares; and
3. flexibility in the place of work, such as working at home or at a satellite location.
