Working hours during business trips

At Lund University, the working time regulations also apply to business travel. Travelling time outside the standard time is not to be counted as working time and there is no special compensation for travelling time.

For those who work according to the flexitime agreement, the standard time measure of 8 hours of full-time work applies for each non-holiday Monday to Friday. The standard hours are considered to be from 08:00 to 16:30 with a half-hour lunch.

Managers may authorise working time at the place of work in addition to the standard hours to be credited. An assignment is defined as service or duties carried out in a place other than the normal place of work. 

Teachers with annual working hours are responsible for managing their working hours and planning them so that agreed tasks are completed within the framework of the annual working hours (staff plan).

Social interaction, even if scheduled, does not count as working time.
