additional hours
Explanation:
Extract from HR at Uppsala University:

"You can also be ordered to work overtime if you are a part-time employee. This is called additional hours (mertid) until you have worked the same number of hours as a full-time employee. Then, you receive overtime. Additional hours must not amount to more than 175 hours per year. After that, additional hours become overtime. On the whole, you are not allowed to do more than 200 hours per year. Payment for additional hours is the same as your hourly wage (1/165 of your fixed salary)."

Thanks! Naturally, there is no American equivalent. We just work and work and work. Part time work usually involves 35 hours a week or less. Full time is more than that. There are currently no laws that regulate the number of "additional hours" a part time employee can work.

additional working time


Explanation:
mertid, arbetstid vid deltidsarbete vilken överstiger ordinarie arbetstid och jourtid enligt anställningsavtalet. Arbetstidslagen (1982:673) saknar regler om minsta arbetstid för deltidsarbete men innehåller regler om mertid. Sådan får tas ut när det finns särskilt behov men normalt med högst 200 timmar under ett kalenderår. I huvudsak gäller i övrigt samma regler som för övertid
