Working Time Organization

The aim of the working time organization is to determine the time of working, primarily the start and end of the workday, and the daily interim breaks. The right to organize the working time is possessed by the employer who emanates from the company’s needs. Thus, if necessary for the company and does not harm the employee’s interests, the employer can change the arrangement alone. For example, when shifting the workday beginning to an earlier time, the employer should check that this change does not considerably hinder the employees’ arrival to work (possibility to use public transport in the early hours, etc.).

The working time is usually regulated with some company-internal document, such as the work organization rules. The employer must inform the employee about the working time organization already at the conclusion of the contract. This enables the parties to agree on a slightly different working time, if the ordinary working time organization is not suitable for the employee for some reason.

Working Time Duration

Full-time work is 40 hours per week or 8 hours per day during a 7-day period. The employer and employee can also agree on a partial or shorter working time. For example, the employee could also work 20 hours per week. When a separate agreement does not exist, it is presumed that the employee works full-time.
