I am auditing a course at a local university. It takes place one day a week and begins at 4:00. I am a contract worker and am only allowed to work 8 hours. The earliest I can come in is 7:00 am, which means with break I could leave by 3:30 and still work all my hours.
I am worried this will look bad since most other employees are still in the office at 3:30. How can I explain to my boss that I am taking a course and although I will leave earlier than other employees on one day, I will still meet my weekly hours?
