Austria - Unpaid overtime widespread - April 30, 2016

Based on data from the office for statistics, the chamber of labour AK has calculated that some 52 million hours of overtime were not paid in 2015. This would equal 30,000 fulltime jobs. In its daily juridical assistance AK is regularly confronted with non-pay of overtime. In order to prevent breaches the AK suggest introducing a sanctioning based on the doubling of the compensation pay.
