The Labor Law limits working hours to 48 hours per week.
Work that is performed beyond this limit will be considered as overtime.
Likewise, the law provides that an employee cannot work more than six days per week and eight hours per day.
According to the Labor Law, overtime cannot exceed three hours per day or 45 hours per month.
In addition, an employee cannot work overtime for more than four consecutive days, except in emergencies.
Overtime wages differ according to the type of overtime, with the Labor Law providing different rates for different days and periods in which the overtime is performed (e.g. overtime on regular days, overtime at night, overtime on public holidays).
With respect to an indefinite-term contract, each party may terminate the contract at any time provided notification is provided to the other party at least 30 days in advance for contracts involving physical labor employees, and at least 45 days in advance for contracts involving employees who use intellectual/special skills.
