Some lifestyles require you to work part-time.

This is usually preceded by an application to the employer.

What you need to consider.

Care work and a 40-hour week combined can push people to their personal limits.

Regardless of commitments, many employees would like to work less.

This was the result of a study by the

Institute for Labor Market and Occupational Research (IAB)

.

Men would therefore like to work around 5.5 hours less, while women would like around 6.2 hours less working time.

If you want to reduce your full-time position, you usually have to submit an application.

Application for part-time work: What information you need

Whether you can apply for part-time work depends, among other things, on your length of service.

If you would like to reduce your full-time position, you need a lead time of around three months and ideally a written application.

The

Labor Rights

portal informs you that an oral application is also possible, but you can keep track of the communication process more easily with a written document.

The application can be informal, but should contain the following information:

  • working hours

  • Number of hours

You do not have to justify your desire to work part-time.

However, it is important to know that you have to be with the company for at least six months.

As a rule, more than 15 employees must also be employed.

However, you should remember that you cannot easily reverse your decision.

If you want to return to full-time work, you need the employer's consent.

Apart from this, you should calculate what salary losses you can expect as a result of part-time work before applying.

Entitlement to part-time – what’s behind it

If the requirements of length of service and the size of the company are met and the deadlines have been met, the application is usually granted.

However, the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs

only provides information if there are no operational reasons against the request

.

By the way: As an employee, you must receive written feedback at least one month before the desired start date.

If this is not the case, the working hours will automatically be reduced, as stated in your application.

Fewer hours only for a limited period of time – bridge part-time

If you want to reduce your working hours for a limited period of time, you can apply for bridge part-time work.

This applies for a period of at least one and a maximum of five years.

You should record this in the application.

You will then automatically return to the working hours agreed in your employment contract, informs the

Finanztip.de portal.

However, the principle of bridge part-time work is only possible if you have been in the company for longer than six months and the company has more than 45 employees.
