No. This footnote is a recommendation rather than a requirement, and failure to meet this standard is not considered a non-compliance with the EIT Core Code. However, the length of the normal work week should be documented as part of an audit, and it is expected that employers will consider options for continuous improvement that strive to achieve this. Employers are encouraged to discuss possibilities for reducing weekly working hours with their employees in normal negotiations on conditions and with the EIT member companies they provide. EIT members are not required to ensure that their suppliers actively reduce the working week, although they wish to encourage suppliers to do so and prefer suppliers who have negotiated a shorter working week with their workforce, for example. EIT members generally set the required working hours below 48 hours; For those who do not, the Recommendation would also apply to workers in their own establishments. The international standards (ILO Conventions) on which the Basic Code is based set 48 hours as the maximum duration of the normal working week, but also recognize the importance of the transition to a shorter working week, overtime and suitable and achievable in the national context, for the health and well-being of workers. This may still be a long way off in many countries, and reducing working time to 48 hours will continue to be a priority for many EIT members. 9 BONUSIt is open to employers and employees in each workplace to agree on a bonus system based on performance and productivity measured for each establishment or operation in that particular workplace.
