Lithuania may introduce a four-day working week for civil servants

The innovation will apply only to employees of state and municipal enterprises.

The Speaker of the Lithuanian Parliament Viktoria Chmilyte-Nielsen proposed to establish a four-day working week for employees of the state and municipal sector, who earlier return from parental leave. It is reported by Delphi.

“This proposal, if it is approved, and I hope it will be approved, will in some sense be a pilot project in Lithuania. If it justifies itself, then such a model could expand,” the speaker noted.

It is noted that people will be paid their average salary. This work schedule will be in effect until the child is three years old. This will only apply to state and municipal enterprises.

Cmilyte-Nielsen intends to present the corresponding draft amendments to the Labor Code.

As previously reported, Belgium may switch to a four-day work week.

In Ukraine, two-thirds of employers are ready to switch to a four-day week
