Working time is an integral part of working life with a direct impact on our private lives. The organization of working time largely determines the time for recovery and for private obligations. Due to changing demands in the labor market the regulation and organization of working time is at the center of political, economic and social discussions in Germany. With the present working time report, the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA), a research institution of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, wants to provide a contribution for the current debate. Data base for the report is the BAuA-Working Time Survey 2015 with a sample of about 20 000 working persons in Germany, who worked at least 10 hours a week in their primary occupation. They were interviewed about working hours and working conditions.
