Introduction of a four-day workweek isn’t considered in Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Population Sahil Babayev said.

Babayev added that shortened working days are a comprehensive issue that can affect employment and the labor market.

“In Azerbaijan, salary is determined on a monthly basis,” the minister said. “In a number of countries, a 4-day work week is based on hours. Reduction of working hours in Azerbaijan may affect salary. But in the future this issue, just like any other, may be discussed.”
