In accordance with current employment legislation, each employee must work 40 hours a week. However, if the entrepreneur, according to Rozenko believes that to improve production efficiency or health of the employee need to give him not one hour but two or three hours, that is his right.

“No employer in this no limits now. And to say that in the summer let’s cut the 40-hour working week and will do it, for example, 35-hour, in my opinion, it is inexpedient”, – said Deputy Prime Minister.
