Working hours and rest breaks
Moore Barlow’s employment law solicitors provide advice on working hours and rest breaks.
This includes the legal requirements for working hours, maximum weekly working hours and rest breaks, guidance on how to calculate working hours, record keeping, and the consequences of breaching working time regulations.
- The rules around working hours and the time off you are entitled to are complex.
- We can advise whether your current working arrangements fit within the law.
- If you believe you are working too many hours or days in a row, or aren’t receiving adequate time off, we can help resolve matters on your behalf.
Are you working long days with no breaks or worried that you are working too many days in a row? It is important to understand your basic rights when it comes to working hours and rest breaks. The rules do get very complex and there are exceptions and alternatives. There are also additional rules for younger workers. If you have any concerns or queries, it is prudent to take legal advice.
What are working hours and rest breaks?
Working hours and rest breaks are the number of hours an employee is required to work, as well as the breaks they are entitled to take.
