      Hi, Coilin!
      I believe you are right, this probably means the possibility to work some hours in advance, probably by staying at work longer hours or by starting work earlier than required (and then to have the extra hours off when I need). HTH.

      Hi there,

      Does anyone know what this phrase means exactly?

      I have very little context:
      It's a text about employers attitudes to foreign employees:

      U pracovniku v nemanualnich pracovnich pozicich se jedna zejmena o
      moznost prizpusobit si zacatek a konec pracovni doby, u manualnich
      pracovniku pak spise prilezitost nadpracovat si cast pracovniho dne
      nebo i delsi casovy usek

      I don't think it's overtime but some sort of arrangement where you
      work four ten-hour days instead of five eight-hour days to get your
      forty hour week. Am I right in this interpretation? And, if so, what
      would we call that in English? (flexitime?)
