Job Sharing Definition

A type of flexible work arrangement in which two or more employees share the tasks usually assigned to one person. This may be done voluntarily, or the tasks may be assigned as needed.

Job Sharing Extended Definition
This form of alternative work schedule allows two or more individuals to share in the same position and same workload.

While a standard workload is usually assigned to one person who works full time, two people share the tasks with job sharing. They also often split the hours required for the completion of tasks, while salary and benefits are paid on a pro-rata basis.
