Working Hours

§ 8
Limiting hours of work and application of weekly rest


Working hours and overtime must comply with national law and industry standards. A worker is entitled to have at least one full free day every seven days.


The maximum working hours per week are as defined by national law but shall not exceed 48 hours on a regular basis. Overtime is applicable to time-bound contracts (not to piece rate work). It shall not exceed 12 hours per week and cannot be required on a regular basis.
