    On the other hand, the Costa Rican Union of Chambers and Associations of Private Enterprise (UCCAEP) urged the Government to implement changes to “modernize the workday” to adapt “to the new economic and social reality.” This would imply a shift from a legal day of 8 hours of work to four days of 12 hours of work and three days off.
