In Bosnia and Herzegovina, the standard workweek is 40 hours spread over five days. In some instances, a workweek may be extended. Minors are not permitted to work more than 35 hours per week, and pregnant women, mothers of children under the age of three, and single parents (including single adoptive and foster parents) may be required to work overtime only with their express written consent.
Minors, pregnant women who have reached the sixth month of their pregnancy, and mothers, adoptive and foster parents with children under the age of two are prohibited from working between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
In most cases, overtime is limited to ten hours per week and must be justified by an emergency or an unexpected operational need. Overtime and night work compensation is not fixed, and these increases in compensation should be documented in the employment contract.
