Overtime work

Overtime work shall only be permitted as an exception in certain cases (art. 144 of LC). The duration of the overtime work performed by one employee in one calendar year shall not exceed 150 hours (art. 146, para. 1 of LC). The law stipulates restrictions regarding the duration of the overtime work performed in one calendar month, one calendar week, and two consecutive working days (art. 146, para. 2 of LC). Specified are the cases where the said restrictions do not apply (art. 146, para. 3 of LC). The law makes provision for cases where overtime work is inadmissible (art. 147, para. 1 and 2 of LC). The employee shall be entitled to refuse to work overtime, in case the provisions of the Labour Code, of another normative act, or of the collective agreement are not observed (art. 148 of LC). The employer shall keep a special register to account for overtime work (art. 149, para. 1 of LC). Overtime work performed during the calendar year shall be accounted for before the Labour Inspectorate until 31st January of the following calendar year (art. 149, para. 2 of LC).  Labour remuneration in an increased amount shall be paid for overtime work (art. 150 of LC and art. 262 of LC).
