Concepts and Definitions

This refers to the actual time spent by employed persons on work activities, regardless of whether the hours are regular in nature or whether they are paid for.

It includes all forms of overtime hours of work. Similar to usual hours worked, it covers the time put in for all jobs that an individual held during the reference period.

It excludes all the time that is spent away from work, even if that time is paid for.
