QCOSTARICA – If legislator Rafael Ortiz of the Partido Unidad Social Cristiana (PUSC) has is way, the work day in Costa Rica will be extended to 10 hours, Monday to Friday, and exempt both public and private workers, from working on Saturdays.

The draft bill proposed by Ortiz does not change the 48 hour work week for day work and 36 hours for night work, as set out in the Labour Code (Código de Trabajo).

“What is possible is that employers and workers can agree on accumulated days of up to 10 hours a day, so that for example, they would work from Monday to Friday and rest on Saturday and Sunday,” said the legislator.

Currently, the typical work day is 8 hours, that means work on Saturday to accumulate the 48 hours work week, in case of day work. Employees required to work on Sundays have a day off during the week, accorded between the employer and employee.

The draft bill takes into consideration that longer days can be harmful with an extended work day and excludes work in heavy or dangerous conditions, pregnant women and employees between 15 and 18 years of age.
