annual hours

a flexible working hours practice in which working hours are averaged over a year. Employees are contracted to work a given number of hours per year rather than the traditional number of hours per week. Earnings are determined on a similar basis, but usually a fixed weekly or monthly salary is paid regardless of the number of hours worked. Hours are worked when demand dictates and therefore the need for overtime diminishes. Annual hours systems usually cover manual shiftworkers, rather than other parts of the workforce.
