Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Under certain conditions, as an employer you can obtain an exceptional permit for longer daily working hours for employees in your company.

You must submit an application for this.

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 operations, you may be granted longer daily working hours in order to obtain additional shifts off.

Longer working hours in excess of 8 hours can also be approved for construction and assembly sites.

For seasonal and campaign businesses, you may be granted longer daily working hours for the duration of the season or campaign.

The extension of working hours must be compensated by a corresponding reduction at other times.

For reasons of occupational health and safety, daily working hours of more than 12 hours are generally not permitted.

Exceptions are at the discretion of the competent authority.

You are not entitled to an exemption.
