Open-ended working hours

An open-ended working day may not be established for employees with reduced working time (art. 139a, para. 2 of LC). The list of the positions, for which open-ended working hours are established, shall be determined by an order of the employer (art. 139a, para. 3 of LC). The workers and the employees on open-ended working hours shall, if necessary, perform their duties even after the expiry of the regular working hours (art. 139a, para. 4 of LC). In the cases of established open-ended working hours, except for the statutory rests during the working day, the workers and employees shall have the right to a rest of at least 15 minutes after the expiration of the regular working hours (art. 139a, para. 5 of LC). ) In the cases of established open-ended working hours, the total duration of the working hours may not breach the uninterrupted rest between the working days and between the working weeks, established by the Labour Code (art. 139a, para. 6 of LC). Overtime work on working days shall be compensated by an additional annual paid leave, and work on weekends and public holidays - by an increased remuneration for overtime work (art. 139a, para. 7 of LC).
