With the new Law, is replaced, among others, paragraph 11 of article 38 of Law 1892/1990 and from now on when there is a need for additional work beyond the agreed working hours, the employee who is working under part time employment is entitled to an increased pay of 12% to the agreed hourly wage for each additional hour of work and until the working hours of a comparable full time employee are reached. When there is no comparable full-time employee, the comparison is made with reference to the collective agreement, to which the employee is subject, if he/she had been hired under a full-time employment contract. Providing additional work until the working hours of a full-time employee are reached with the equivalent increment in the salary is a safeguard for tackling undeclared overtime and circumvention of the nature of part-time work. The legislator’s purpose is the protection of part-time employees from the violation of their rights as well as the prevention of employers from abusively turning to part-time employment contracts. The abovementioned increment acts as a motive in order for employers to opt for full-time employment rather than part-time employment or job rotation. In case of employer’s noncompliance to the above, the employee can claim the delayed salary with the above increments.
