Therefore, a SCRC, at times, may be called upon to come in early, stay late or work on weekends. For example, evening hours may be needed to follow-up with study participants by phone and/or meet with staff. If a SCRC works early, late or on a weekend s/he should not request to "make up the time" the following week as that is the not the spirit of the position.
