Rules on working hours and statutory rest periods relaxed, 20/01/2010

 

Recent legislation has amended certain ingrained and inflexible rules on statutory working hours and conferred on staff representatives and employers legal powers to deviate mutually from the usual framework. Generally, standard working hours are up to eight hours per day and up to 40 hours per week; however, now they may be exceeded up to certain limits under certain circumstances.
