Collective agreements signed in the public sector in winter 2019-2020 contain a provision for changes to be made to the organization of the working hours and for shortening of the workweek up to 36 hours a week.
The shortening was implemented on 1 January 2021 for daytime workers and 1 May 2021 for shift workers.
The main goal of the changes is to support the reform in the operation of public institutions, improvement of the workplace culture and increase the opportunity of staff to integrate work and private life, without the need to lower the quality and efficiency of provided services.
