Agreement On Working Time

If your employee is over the age of 18, you can ask them to work more than 48 hours a week and opt out of the work schedule. For a worker whose normal working time does not vary, the weekly wage is the salary due for the basic working time agreed with the work. Overtime payments are not included, unless they are guaranteed overtime, i.e. required by the contract between the employee and the employer. There is an exception for workers who have predetermined part of their working time, but who also decide how long they work. The Health and Safety Executive and local environmental health services may impose average weekly and nocturnal work limits and the requirement to keep records. Employers who fail to comply with these obligations may be subject to an unlimited fine and/or improvement or prohibition decisions. A violation of a declaration of improvement or prohibition may result in an unlimited fine and up to two years` imprisonment for directors. Adult workers cannot work more than 48 hours per week on average. The average weekly working time is usually calculated over a reference period of 17 weeks.

Young workers are entitled to 12 hours of rest between each day of work and two days off per week. Please indicate with this letter the maximum average weekly working time applied to workers by working time laws. The letter states that the employee may disable the limit and procedure if he wishes to revoke the agreement at a later date. The form “48-hour Exit Agreement” should be attached to this letter. Some companies are developing a separate work agreement for night workers. The working time provisions provide important rights for workers, including: a review provided for by the regulations states that a worker enters this category if “the length of his working time is not measured or predetermined or can be determined by the worker himself.” When a qualified physician advises that a night worker suffers from health problems caused or aggravated by night work, the worker has the right to be assigned, if possible, to appropriate day work. However, it does not apply to workers whose conditions are covered by an existing “collective agreement” (for example). B an agreement negotiated with a union that can also adapt these work time issues).

Any collective or labour agreement that purports to terminate an adult worker`s right to opt out of the 48-hour week is null and void.
