HÀ NỘI — Employees could work up to 400 hours of overtime per year compared to the current 200 hours under the revised Labour Code which will be submitted to the National Assembly next year.
The current limit of 200 hours is lower than both Thailand and Singapore, and had led to complaints from businesses.
According to Mai Đức Thiện, deputy director of the Legal Department under the Minsitry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, for years businesses had been asking the Government and National Assembly to increase overtime working hours.
Under the revised law, overtime work must be agreed between employees and employers but it would not exceed four hours per day or 400 hours a year, Thiện told online newspaper vov.vn. — VNS
