What Is A Working Hours Agreement

This flexible working time agreement is concluded between [company name] and [employee name]. Any collective agreement or labour agreement that purports to overhold an adult worker`s right to withdraw from the 48-hour week is null and void. A labour agreement is an agreement between an employer and his employees on the application of certain provisions of the Working Time Ordinance 1998 (SI 1998/1833). An agreement on working time must be in writing, valid for a certain period (maximum five years) and applicable either to all employees or to all employees belonging to a particular group – with the exception of employees whose working and employment conditions are laid down in a collective agreement. It must have been distributed in a draft to all workers to whom it applies, with instructions, in order to assist their understanding of it. It must be signed before its entry into force either by all the representatives of the employees or of a specific group of employees or, if the employer has 20 employees or less, by all the representatives or by the majority of the employees hired by the employer. If you work shifts, night shifts or Sundays, the normal working hours are 38 or 36 hours per week. The duration and arrangement of daily and weekly working hours must be specified in your employment contract. Agreement between the employee and the employer: For a period of up to one year, the working time may be allocated as follows: This agreement is valid from [date] and remains in force indefinitely, unless it is modified or terminated by [name of company] or the employee. In the event that the company or employee intends to terminate this contract, a notice period of at least four weeks will be granted in writing. In the event of an emergency in the workplace, this agreement may be suspended immediately and indefinitely. This Agreement may be accessed at any time at the request of either party.

However, the average number of hours in the period must not exceed the legal limits for normal working hours. For a period of up to 26 weeks, working time may be allocated as follows: normal working time may be calculated on the basis of a fixed average. This means that in some periods you can work more than the limit for normal working hours, in exchange for proportionally shorter hours in other periods. The average number of hours worked must be within the limits of normal working time. I have read and understood this agreement and all its provisions. By signing below, I agree to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. This agreement presupposes that the employee permanently meets the following conditions: the limit of 48 hours per seven days can be calculated according to a fixed average over a period of eight weeks. However, normal working hours may not exceed 50 hours per week. All obligations and responsibilities of the employee, as well as the Terms and Conditions of Employment of the Company, remain unchanged, except as expressly modified by this Agreement. .
