Overtime According to the Spanish Workers’ Statute

Section 35 of the Spanish Workers’ Statute regulates the concept of overtime. Unless the collective agreement that applies to the employment contract provides otherwise, every hour that exceeds the 40-hour-per-week limit is overtime, which corresponds with the maximum duration of the normal working day established under Article 34 of the Workers’ Statute.

Unless otherwise agreed, the general rule is that workers receive compensation for overtime in the form of equivalent time off paid within four months after completion.
