Working hours

On these pages you can read about the rules on working hours.

Rules on working time are set out in legislation and in central and local collective agreements, or, if necessary, in individual agreements. At Lund University, most of the employees' working rules are contained in either the working time agreement for teachers or the flexitime agreement for T/A staff.

In addition, there are rules on confidential working hours, irregular working hours and the possibility of an individual agreement on other working time regulations.

Here you can also read more about OB supplements (compensation for inconvenient working hours), what applies to extra hours and overtime and what applies to working hours during business trips.

You can access information and support via the entries in the left-hand menu:
