If you have full-time employment, you can make use of flexible work hours. This option is not available to staff with part-time employment.
For full-time employment, the standard working week is 40 hours: 5 days of 8 hours. However, because the formal working hours are only 38 hours a week, you will actually work 2 extra hours per week. To compensate for these extra hours, you will receive 96 extra leave hours per year. If you want to actively deploy these 96 hours, you can make this known through the Optional model for employment conditions (KAT). There are two possibilities to choose from:
- A working week of 38 hours. This will of course mean that you do not receive the extra 96 leave hours. You will make arrangements about the division of the flexible work hours with your manager. For example, you could arrange to work until 15:15 instead of 17:15 every Friday.
- A working week of 36 hours. In that case, you will not receive the extra 96 leave hours and you will turn in an additional 96 leave hours on a yearly basis. You will make arrangements about the division of the flexible work hours with your manager. For example, you could arrange that every Friday you will work until 12:30 instead of 17:15.
Please note: It is not possible to work 4 days of 9 hours, this modality is not allowed within the UT. The maximum working hours per working day amount to 8 hours.
If you have used the Optional model for employment conditions to select a working week of 38 or 36 hours, this choice is valid for one year. Every calendar year, at the beginning of the year, you are required to re-establish this choice in the Optional Model.
