Europe calculates the time to and from work within working hours
Economy News - Baghdad
The European Court of Justice has issued a decision declaring the time spent at the beginning of the day to go to work and at the end of the day to return to work, within official working hours in accordance with the law and to protect the rights of the worker.
The court explained that workers without fixed offices must be paid for the time spent on their journey to and from work.
The decision is expected to be enacted to include many functions within the European continent in accordance with the court's decision.
According to the decision, companies employing workers such as electricians, care workers or mechanics may be in breach of EU labor laws if they are not provided to the company's regional offices as the nearest distance branches to the above workers.
The court stated in the ruling that it was based on the European Union's working hours laws, and that if the journey taken from the home of the worker to the workplace or vice versa stems from the company's decision to cancel the regional offices and not the desire of the worker himself, the company is obliged to consider flight hours as official working hours to ensure Worker health and security rights.
