The law relating to your working time is complicated. Some bad employers take advantage of this to deny staff their rights. Others may not understand what the law requires.

This short guide is not a full statement of the law. If your rights are being ignored get advice from your trade union about taking action to enforce them. Download Working time, breaks and holidays booklet (PDF)
