However, seconded or hired workers, as well as regular wages, must pay a proportionate share of special payments for the period during which they are booked or hired – usually as early as each month of pay, even if the collective agreement provides for the payment of a total amount at a later date. There are many exceptions for the allocation of weekly working time per working day. An example is the regulation that extends the normal daily working time to nine hours to allow for a “short Friday” and a longer rest on the weekend. Special payments are not set by law, but are most often set by collective agreement. Typical special allowances are annual vacation allowances and Christmas bonuses, also known as 13th and 14th month of salary, or annual leave bonuses and Christmas bonuses. The annual leave allowance and the Christmas bonus, which are usually paid in the summer and winter, each amount to about one month`s salary or one month`s salary. Collective agreements contain many workers` rights that are not defined by law or not in detail, including: many collective agreements contain rules of pre-promotion (advance) and reclassification (classification) within remuneration systems. Employment time or change of work are important considerations. The promotion refers to an increase in the minimum wage or minimum wage set by the collective agreement in a job class; this usually occurs after a set period (z.B.
after two years, called biennial increase). Reclassification means that workers are transferred from one job class or occupational category to another within a compensation system. This often occurs when the employee changes jobs or after a certain period of employment. Overtime occurs when working time is longer than the normal 40 hours per week or the normal daily working time of eight hours. However, under the Working Time Act (AZG), the normal working time of 40 hours per week or 8 hours per day may be different or extended (for example. B, a flexible agreement on working time or a calculation of average working time over a reference period). Workers receive a pay increase of at least 50% for each overtime worked. Workers who agree on a period of compensation instead of a supplement are entitled to 1.5 and a half hours of overtime instead of one hour.
