Serbia considers shorter working week

The government is considering the adoption of shorter workweeks, to 32 hours, as a measure against layoffs amid economic crisis, Serbian Minister of Labour Rasim Ljajic, said.

However, the if the government passes the proposition, the reduced working hours will not be obligatory for all the employers, but only for those who plan layoffs.

Ljajic added that the implementation of the shorter working week does not mean wages cut, as the working hours would be compensated by overtime work in the next 6 to 12 months.
