Here’s a breakdown of the six types of work patterns:

Full-time Employment

This entails working for one employer for the entirety of the daily working hours on all designated working days.

Remote Work

Specifics regarding this pattern were not detailed in the ministry’s release but typically pertain to jobs performed away from a traditional office setting.

3. Job Sharing

Details about this pattern were not included in the recent clarification but generally refer to two or more individuals sharing the responsibilities and hours of a single full-time position.

4. Part-time Employment

Under this pattern, a worker can work for one or multiple employers but only for a designated number of working hours or days.

5. Temporary Work:

This refers to jobs that have a predetermined duration, often tied to a specific task or project. The employment concludes once the task or project is completed.

6. Flexible Work:

This pattern is characterised by variability in working hours or days, depending on the workload, economic conditions, and the operational needs of the employer. The employee might be required to work at fluctuating times based on the job’s conditions and requirements.
