Working time, paid leave and rest
If you employ staff in the civil aviation sector, you must limit their maximum annual working time to 2 000 hours, with a maximum of 900 hours of total flight time.
You must guarantee that mobile staff working in civil aviation are given at least 4 weeks of paid annual leave. You cannot replace it by an allowance, except when the employment is terminated.
You should give your staff working in all types of services a minimum of:
- 7 days free of all duty per calendar month (which may include any rest periods required by law)
- 96 days free of all duty per calendar year (which may include any rest periods required by law)
Health and safety
Before your staff start to work, they must undertake a free health assessment, respecting medical confidentiality, and repeat it at regular intervals. If an employee suffers from health problems connected to night work, you must transfer them, whenever possible, to day work.
