Rights in relation to working time
The working time regulations 1998 are the rules that govern the time that workers are required to work.
If you work for us under a PAYE worker contract working time regulations, these regulations protect you from being asked to work more than 48 hours per week, but you can opt out if you wish to do so.
If your working pattern suggests you may be required to work more than 48 hours, please contact your Account Manager to discuss your options.
You are also protected by the Working Time Regulations if you work for an umbrella company as you would be working under a PAYE contract. The umbrella company would be responsible for administering these rules.
Where you work for your own personal service company, you need to ensure you are observant of these regulations in the administration of pay and time.
The working time regulations also mandate that PAYE workers must receive paid holidays. These rules drive the calculation of the holiday accrual system utilised for PAYE workers.
