High court rejects 4-day work week in judiciary

Supreme court

The Supreme Court rejected proposals for a four-day work week to ease  traffic congestion in the metropolis.

“The Court resolved, upon the recommendation of the Office of Administrative Services, to deny the implementation of the four-day work week scheme in the judiciary,” read the SC resolution promulgated on Oct. 14 but released only Monday.

Under the CSC proposal, government offices in the metropolis can voluntarily implement the new work schedule from Tuesday to Friday or Monday to Thursday.

Employees covered by the scheme will be required to work from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., taking an hour off for their lunch break.
