Labour Standards Averaging Agreement
In the event of dismissal or termination by the employer, the worker is entitled to overtime pay for all hours worked more than 40 times the number of weeks in the end part of the average period. Average hours of work can be worked between a worker or a group of workers and their employer. The normal working time of an average employee is 40 times the weekly working time during the average period; The maximum number of hours worked should not exceed 48 times the weekly working time during the average period. For an average of two weeks, for example, the standard and maximum hours are 80 hours and 96 hours respectively. 3. A work programme in an agreement provided for by this section can only provide for the employee the following hours of work: the new hours can start as soon as an authorization/order is received by the employer and reserved in the workplace. Minimum standards are maintained until authorization is received. The new timetable will take effect until the approval expires. iii. The agreement provides for a period of 1 to 4 weeks.
The agreement may not exceed 4 weeks, unless the director varies. (see section 72 (h.1) of the law). Overtime is calculated over the time of day or the average period. Employers can choose one of two options. A funding agreement can be reached between an employer and a single worker or group of workers. To reach a funding agreement, workers must work 30 hours or more per week on a regular basis and not be unionized. 10. At the written request of the worker, the employer and the worker may agree to adapt the work plan to subsection 2. (a) (iv) provided that the total number of hours stipulated in the agreement remains unchanged.
(11) The parties to a funding agreement under this section are bound by this agreement until the date of the rehabilitation under the agreement or a later date: the provisions of the financing agreement are applicable to the determination of the worker`s potential right to an additional hourly wage in the subsections (4) and (6) as well as subsections 8 or 9 b. (12) Subsections 2 to 11 are considered contractual terms under the funding agreement under this section. In short, a financing agreement is an agreement between the employer and the employee, which allows employers and employees to increase the average number of hours worked for one, two, three or four weeks and to eliminate the need to pay overtime for the hours covered by the agreement. Note: Collective agreements may define different methods of how workers should obtain copies of funding agreements. A key aspect of the imclassification provisions of the Working Hours Act is that there must be a written and signed agreement on overtime extensions before overtime begins.
