Concept selected: Usual Hours


The reference period to be taken into account will be at least the last 4 weeks prior to the Sunday of the reference week, and at the most the last 3 months, not taking into account possible periods of absence.
Where this period is not readily identifiable, it will be accepted as an approximate:
- The number of hours stipulated by contract for your main activity, during the reference week (for those with a contract) plus overtime expected excluding time pent travelling to or from the workplace and meal breaks lasting more than an hour,
- The average hours actually worked in the last 4 weeks, plus hours absent from work in the last 4 weeks.
If the person has been absent for an extended period (over three months), for example maternity leave, usual hours will be those corresponding to the period prior to the absence.
