We look at the implications as the Latin American country gradually reduces from 45 hours.

In April 2023 politicians approved a law in congress saying that businesses need to move towards cutting their hours to help get a better work life balance for employees.

This reduction is happening gradually, and the working week is getting shorter by at least one hour per year, over a maximum of five years.

We speak to workers and businesses in Chile about the impact - good and bad - that this is having.
