The working week in Andorra is 40 hours long, as it is in other nations. Any change in weekly hours due to operational reasons needs a fifteen-day notice. This may not necessarily apply to managers and executives who have reached alternative agreements with their firms. Every employee is also entitled to a 30-minute break after each 6-hour shift. Weekly working hours, including overtime, must never exceed 60 hours. Furthermore, the maximum number of hours in a day is 12. Working hours must be kept to less than 1800 per year.
The monthly minimum salary in 2020 was €1083.33. Employee deductions include a 6.5 percent Social Security payment. 15.5 percent is the employer's responsibility. Negotiating extra bonuses, incentives, or commissions with the company is always a possibility, depending on the role.
If no other agreement with the employer has been established, the remuneration for midnight work is increased by 20%. The following rule applies to all general overtime. Up to four hours incur a 25% cost, four to eight hours incur a 50% surcharge, and each hour beyond that incurs a 75% surcharge. Remember that an average working day should not exceed 12 hours.
Andorra has just four statutory public holidays: January 1st is New Year's Day, March 14th is Andorran Constitution Day, September 8th is Our Lady of Meritxell's Feast, and December 25th is Christmas. (These days do not apply to the tourism or medical industries.) Employees who are obliged to work on a national holiday are entitled to two days off as compensation. The employee is entitled to treble pay if the employer fails to give compensating days. Employees have the right to 23 days of vacation each year, which are always calculated based on yearly working hours. He or she is obligated to take a vacation throughout the same calendar year.
