job sharing


Job sharing refers to a job in which employees in an employment relationship with reduced working time distribute among themselves the actual working hours and the tasks pertaining to the job, and the full-time post benefits.

There are many combinations and permutations of job sharing and it may provide considerable flexibility for employees who wish to work part-time, in particular parents with small children.
