Part-time work involves less work than full working hours

  • Part-time work means that less work is done than agreed for "full" working hours in collective agreements and collective agreements for public servants or in legislation.
  • Less than 30 hours of work a week or less than 75 per cent of regular working hours are often categorised as part-time work. The working hours of part-time work may also be defined differently in collective agreements and collective agreements for public servants.
  • The benefits specified in collective agreements and collective agreements for public servants and applied to part-time employees may not be less favourable than those of full-time employees. The benefits are proportioned to the working hours that the employee puts in, however.
  • If a need to increase workforce arises at the workplace, the work must first be offered to a part-time employee who pursues full-time work.
