DMV Formal Flex Cancellation


On Monday, December 20, 2021, SEIU Local 1000 met with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) regarding the discontinuation of the formal flex policy. We confirmed that DMV offers and supports four informal options (depending on operational need and coverage availability):

  • Alternate Work Week Schedules
  • Informal flex time
  • Augmented schedules around school years
  • Make up time

DMV confirmed that management should be responding to each request in writing and not unreasonably denying any request. Reasonable Accommodations should not be used unless it is related to a medical reason. DMV-1 forms can be used for any request, even informal, and should be responded to in a timely manner.

If your requests are either being denied or not responded to, please contact your Job Steward, union representative, or the Member Resource Center (MRC) at 866.471.SEIU (7438), so we can raise the issue with DMV Labor Relations, and/or file a grievance to resolve the issue.
