The Working Time Regulations are intended to promote the health and wellbeing of all workers. Your health and safety is important to us and we believe it is important for you to understand the regulations.
The basic rights and protections that the regulations provide for adult workers (aged 18 or over) are:
Your supervisor will inform you of any extra breaks you may be entitled to take. Hours will vary from assignment to assignment but you will be informed of these prior to starting the assignment. If you are a driver please refer to the driver’s handbook for additional guidance on working hours.
If you want to work for more than 48 hours a week you will be required to sign an opt-out agreement, which you can cancel at any time; this is stated under Regulation 4 of the above Act, where relevant your consultant will discuss this with you.
It is the total number of hours worked so if you have registered with other agencies please let us know.
