How many hours make up a standard working week?
The working hours are most often between 06.00 and 18.00 (except evening or night work).
Your working week can be much longer if you are self-employed or employed in a managerial position.
If you are employed, the working hours are fixed through collective wage agreements, but when you are self-employed, there are no fixed rules.
If you work fewer than the usual number of weekly hours, it is called "reduced hours" or part-time work.
