The project includes a representative survey of employees on questions of working time and thus potentially related burdens. This corresponds to several recent studies in occupational science examining the relationships between working hours, work-life balance, overload syndromes, and health limitations. The survey covers 20,000 CATI interviews in dual frame design.

Contents of the questionnaire:

  • Current occupation(s)/employment(s)
  • Occupational requirements and working conditions
  • Duration, location, distribution, and flexibility of working hours
  • Breaks and relaxation time
  • Flexible working time models and flexitime accounts
  • Commuting hours and mobility
  • Multiple employment
  • Overtime and work-life balance
  • On-call duty and permanent availability
