AUSTRIA
ZERO-HOURS/BECK-AND-CALL WORK
ARBEIT AUF ABRUF

In Austria, as in other countries, there has been a recent trend in the retail sector in particular towards the use of variable working hours at the unilateral determination of the employer (see stand-by/on-call, working hours/working time: KAPOVAZ). However, the latest amendments to working time legislation have imposed strict limits on the introduction of these forms of working.
