Time bank

The working time bank allows employees to save and combine their working time, days off earned or cash benefits converted into time off. It is not possible to transfer wages, allowances or other claims of a compensatory nature for regular working time, or cash benefits due, to the working time bank.

The employer and the employees’ representative or the staff or staff group may jointly agree in writing on the introduction of a working time bank. The written agreement shall specify the items eligible for the working time bank, the limits on savings, the termination of the working time bank and the resulting reimbursement of the items and the use of time off saved in the working time bank.
