On average, full-time employees in Germany work nearly five hours longer per week than contractually agreed. Almost half of the employees would like to reduce their working hours. Those who have predictable working hours and control over their working hours are often healthier and have a better work-life balance. These are the results of the first BAuA working time report based on a representative national survey.
