Croatia has adopted measures to shorten the workweek, and the state would co-finance one working day, up to 4,000 kunas per worker, according to portal Poslovni.hr.

The measure currently only applies to the processing industry.

The new measure is planned to take effect in June and last until the end of this year.

Assistance will be provided to employers who apply for part-time work for at least 10 and at most 50 per cent of workers for whom they cannot provide full-time work.

The employer must keep the workers to whom the measure was approved for as many months as he used that measure, and is not allowed to pay dividends or bonuses to managers until the end of 2021.
