Is it possible to work part-time?

To the question whether it is possible to work part-time, we will answer: yes, it is possible - Russian legislation provides for such an activity, but certain restrictions are imposed on it, which we will touch on. We will also discuss the issue of dismissal from part-time work: whether it is necessary to work 2 weeks and in what cases it is required. Let's figure it out.

How long can part-time work

The law allows part-time work, but no more than part-time. This is due primarily to the control of working time. So, the normal working week is 40 hours (5 days a week with two weekends or another distribution of hourly workload). This means that the part-timeer cannot work additionally more than 20 hours a week. In this case, an arbitrary distribution of free time is allowed. That is, you can work both 12 hours a day, including part-time work, and, for example,from Monday to Friday at the main job, and on Saturday and Sunday - at an additional 10 hours.

Another distribution of working time with less load is also possible. Part-time employment is also allowed at the main place of work (for example, working not 40, but 30 or 20 hours a week), but even in such cases, working more than 20 hours a week for additional work is not allowed by the law, which is regulated by article No. 345 Federation.

Dismissal of part-time workers

Before describing the procedure for dismissal from additional work, we will touch on the question that is closely related to this. If part-time work is more valuable to you than the main place of work at the moment, and you have part-time jobs at the main place of work, you can do this: re-register your main job as part-time work by submitting a corresponding application to the employer. Then you will have the opportunity to do part-time work as your main activity and work on it up to 40 hours a week (you can and more for an additional fee).

As for the question of dismissal from additional work, the majority is interested in the question whether it is worthwhile in this case to work out two weeks before the dismissal, as is done at the main place of employment. The order of dismissal from part-time work is no different from the order of dismissal from the main place of work, so after submitting a letter of dismissal for 2 weeks, the employee is obliged to work out these two weeks. Of course, no one bothers you to reach an agreement with your employer and shorten it, or to abolish this period altogether, but here everything will depend on the compliance of the authorities.

An important addition: working out is valid only if you quit your part-time job of your own accord. If the dismissal is forced, no one has the right to force you to work out not only 2 weeks, but even one day.
