Request longer daily working hours


Under certain conditions, you as an employer can obtain an exemption for employees in your company for longer daily working hours.
For this, you must submit an application.

A deviation from the regulations on working hours is possible for:

  • continuous shift operations
  • Construction and assembly sites
  • Seasonal and campaign operations

For continuous shift work, you may be granted a longer daily working time in order to achieve additional free shifts.

In the case of seasonal and campaign operations, you may be granted longer daily working hours for the duration of the season or campaign. The increase in working time is compensated by a corresponding reduction at other times. For reasons of health protection, daily working hours of more than 12 hours are generally not permitted in continuous shift operations as well as in seasonal and campaign operations.

For construction and assembly sites, a longer daily working time beyond 8 hours can be permitted without special conditions.

You are not entitled to an exemption.

Please contact the State Office for Consumer Protection.
