Compensation will be given partly in the form of time off and partly in the form of cash compensation (shift work allowance). For determining time compensation, hours will be treated as shown in the table in Article 7.

Compensation will, where possible and with due consideration to practical, social and organisational aspects, be equally divided into percentages of the normal length of working hours and percentages of the hourly wage. The compensation in time off specified here does not change the agreed length of working hours. For employees with shorter working hours than an average of 36 hours per week there is the option of paying 100% of the compensation in cash, subject to consultation. If due to the above considerations your employer requested that a shift ends earlier, the full work shift will be compensated.
