Applying for an exemption from the ban on working on Sundays and public holidays

Description

As an employer, you require a permit from the local authority responsible for occupational health and safety if you wish to work on a Sunday or public holiday. You can apply for a permit to work on Sundays or public holidays for

  • holding in-house and order fairs for commercial resellers.
  • Preventing disproportionate damage to a business due to special circumstances, such as a very high sickness rate or late delivery of materials.
  • the statutory stocktaking, if this cannot be carried out on a weekday.

If there are other reasons, these will also be examined and work on Sundays or public holidays will be approved if necessary.

The general ban on working on Sundays and public holidays does not apply to activities that serve to meet the particularly prominent needs of the population, such as

  • Services of general interest (for example in the care of the sick or the care of animals),
  • services (for example in restaurants or cab companies) and
  • Leisure activities (for example in theaters, soccer or leisure facilities)
  • Use in emergencies and exceptional cases (work that cannot be postponed, such as repairs to burst pipes or storm damage to roofs).

Maximum limits apply for certain exceptions.

  • You are an employer.
  • You have admissible reasons for your application for approval.
  • Statement from the staff or works council (if available)
  • Proof that disproportionate damage would occur (e.g. information on contractual penalties, loss of orders and customers, loss of jobs)
    • Damage as a result of the special circumstances is any financial disadvantage that the employer would suffer as a result of the special circumstances. However, not every impending loss is sufficient; it must rather be disproportionate (unacceptable or unreasonable) and go beyond the economic losses that are already caused by the general shutdown on Sundays and public holidays. Concrete, numerical proof is required here.

Both the granting and the refusal to grant an exemption from the ban on working on Sundays and public holidays is subject to a fee. The amount of the fees is based on the fee schedule of the locally competent authority.

Fee: 25,00 - 435,00 EUR
Payment in advance: No
