Résumé/Citation: These amendments deal with maximum hours of work and their distribution, as well as with annual leave. They provide for gradually reducing the statutory hours of work from 48 to 40 per week, with transitional measures foreseen. The changes will also permit workers in certain establishments to work flexible hours in respect to their starting and finishing times. The new provisions extend the period for hours-averaging schemes, and contemplate a maximum working day of ten hours (instead of eight) in certain industries where an agreement to that effect has been reached; pregnant women may not, however, be compelled to work hours in excess of the transitional normal work week and work day. In addition, the statutory entitlement to paid annual leave is to be increased from six to ten working days by 1994 in enterprises normally employing over 300 employees, with proportional entitlement for part time workers. The effective date of the amendments is 1 April 1988, with transitional provisions for small and medium-sized enterprises.
