working more than 100%

Is it legal to work the equivalent of more than 100% total across multiple jobs? Under which conditions is the possible?

Sorry that I wasn't able to find this in the search. Any references would be helpful, thanks.

Re: working more than 100%

according to some directors it is not only legal its compulsory.

i take it you mean having multiple jobs ? fine i think if you can keep up , but be careful of overdoing it and also more importantly the tax situation......even dodgier if you are on a licence to only work so many hours per week etc.

Re: working more than 100%

I also thought it was common to work more than 100%. I also mentioned it to the arbeitsamt and the migrationsamt (sent them both of my contracts and spoke on the phone) and they didn't indicate a problem.

Yes, I plan to start two jobs, one with 100% and the other with 20%. I've been told by the 20% job that I should either quit this job or reduce my time at the other to 80%.

Do you know how I can get this sorted out?

And I'm not sure what you mean about the tax situation. But I guess I could call the arbeitsamt to ask about my particular permit and what it allows, right?

Re: working more than 100%

If you are an independent there is of course no limit. But if you are an employee of a company that pays your contributions to a pension plan, insurance and unemployment then there could be an issue if you work more than a defined limit of hours/week. The reasons:

- you have paid vacation during which you are not supposed to work; vacation is paid by company so that you come back fit again for optimal productivity.
- the more hours/week you work, the higher are the chances that you'll get sick or a work accident; so here the insurances put a pressure on your employer to enforce the limit of working hours/week.

Re: working more than 100%

Hi! I know this is a relatively old thread, but I was wondering how it went working the 120%? Was there any trouble? and basically, how long before you actually had the trouble?
I'm in the exact same situation at the moment.
Thanks!

Re: working more than 100%

I used to do it. 160%

Told my one company (60%) if they did not like it I would gladly go to 100% only at the other company. Then it was fine
They did not like it one bit and came with a whole bunch of legal issues etc etc.

In the end noone complained about it (federal/ commune,....)

After 5 months I was forced to go to just 100% at 1 job as I couldnt keep up (One job was a 40 min commute by car)

Made a shit load of money to make our move to the USA . Looking back....not such a good choice but thats another story.
