Employees who fall under the flexitime scheme can normally transfer up to 50 plus hours from one year to the next. Due to the corona pandemic, the settlement date for flexitime has been moved from 1.1.2021 to 31.8.2021. This means that everyone will have all their plus hours transferred from 2020 to 2021. In the new year, the manager and employee must work together to lay out a plan for phasing out flexitime.
