HOURS OF WORK

The Wage Regulation Orders regulate, according to different sectors and activity of work, the normal hours of work for full-time employment. The normal hours of work of a part-time employee should be less than those worked by a comparable full-time employee, calculated on a weekly basis or on an average over a period of employment of up to one year.
Furthermore, an employment contract may be subject to reduced hours. Full-time employment with reduced hours is employment in respect of which social security contributions are payable and when the employee agrees with his/her employer to work less hours than those worked by a comparable full-timer. In such cases, the wage and other entitlements shall be granted on a pro-rata basis. The same applied for any part-time employment, whether as a principal or secondary employment, as a part-time employee is entitled to all entitlements enjoyed by the comparable full-time employee, on a pro rata basis.
