Labour market – Good to Know

The average work week is 40-hours, including lunch time and breaks. For more information on workers‘ rights you can visit Work in Iceland and The Icelandic Confederation of Labour‘s website.

All workers pay into a pension fund. Workers also make membership payments to a union, which in turn enables them to enjoy the rights associated with union payments, such as educational grants and holiday cottages. For more info on pension funds and unions click here.
