The Cabinet of Ministers supported the proposal to new regulating the working hours.


The Cabinet of Ministers supported the proposal to abandon the outdated principle of regulating the working hours of public institutions. Now they don’t have to work from 8:30 to 17:00.

The current working time was set in 1996. As explained by the State Chancellery, it does not correspond to the actual situation in institutions. Now the rules for regulating the time of work will become more elastic.

Already, a number of government agencies do not comply with this standard. Among them there are the State Social Insurance Agency, the Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs, the Register of Enterprises and the Labor Inspectorate.

“The institutions that are engaged in the provision of public services have already established such working hours to make visitors as comfortable as possible. Refusing a single working time will not affect the time and order of receiving visitors,” the Chancellery assures.
