In the modern business climate, many businesses are called upon to deliver products or services 24/7. In order to meet these demands, employers are taking advantage of a more flexible working approach, including flexible start and finish times, shift work, job sharing, home working and overtime. It is very important, however, that all of these methods are fair to the employee and compliant with employment law.


The Lamb Brooks Employment Department has a complete understanding of the Working Time Regulations and how this applies to your business’ working arrangements. We are able to advise you in relation to your legal obligations with respect to maximum weekly working time, patterns of work and holidays, as well as daily and weekly rest periods. We are also on hand to advise you as to the specific obligations that apply in relation to night workers, young workers, part time workers and other special categories.


If you are proposing to change patterns of work or you have issues with regards to working time or statutory holiday benefits, call our Employment Team today for guidance.
