When is a temporary assignment considered to take place at the weekend?

All jobs that run from Friday midnight to Sunday midnight are considered weekend jobs. If your assignment starts on Saturday night at 8pm until Sunday at 8am, you will have 8 hours which will be worked and paid as a Sunday. Even if the assignment starts on Saturday.

What are the advantages of working as a temp at the weekend?

The main advantage is that you have the whole week (or part of it) to do what you want. It is easier to make doctor's appointments, to do your shopping outside of rush hour, to manage all the administrative tasks, to pick up your children from school, especially at lunchtime...

The second possible advantage is the better pay. In most sectors, you will get an extra income for working on Sundays as a temp.

The third reason for going into weekend jobs is the high demand. The profiles of people who want to work at weekends are rarer, but the demand is there. It will therefore be easier to find a night job than a day job in certain sectors.

Finally, temporary work at weekends also allows students to attend classes during the week.

What are the disadvantages of weekend assignments?

If you decide to work only on weekends and public holidays, you may be working part-time. This may mean a lower income than working full-time during the week, depending on the agreement that applies in your sector.

The second potential disadvantage is compatibility with your personal life. People with children or a busy family life will have to take time off when childcare or meeting other family members is frequent.

What does the law say about temporary work at weekends?

There are no specific regulations on temporary agency work at weekends. The general labour legislation applies.

Sunday is therefore a day that must be off in most cases, whether or not it is a temporary one. However, some sectors are exempt from this obligation due to the nature of their activity.

The law does not oblige employers to pay their employees more at weekends. However, the collective agreements of the sectors of activity may oblige employers to pay their employees, even temporary workers, more at weekends. This is the case, for example, in the health sector or in commerce.

The law is the same for public holidays.
