It is allowed to pay 0.5 hours (day work) of the right for time off if an employee so wishes. In all cases it is not allowed to reduce 8 hours of consecutive rest.If the working time an of employee on a day prior to a holiday or a weekend is too long to allow for 11 hours of rest considering the normal beginning of working day, the same shall apply. If an employee comes to work on a holiday or aweekend, overtime wages shall be paid for the time worked with no additional payments resulting from this.The above provisions do not apply to organised shift work where the reduction of resting time is allowed down to the 8 hour limit.The accumulated right for time off according to the above shall be shown on the wage statement and granted in half and whole days outside of the times of maximum activity in the operation of company in consultation with employees, given that the accumulated right to time off is at least 4 hours. On termination of job the employee’s outstanding right to time off shall be paid as a part of the employment time.
