The Government has released further advice on the Working Time directive.
In the guidance, the DTI covers topics such as night working, rest breaks, paid annual leave and frequently asked questions.
It was not clear as Personnel Today went to press whether the Government had clarified the position over workers who are implicitly required in their contracts to work extra hours.
In draft guidance these staff were covered by the directive (Personnel Today, 14 March).
The guidance can be found on the DTI web site and booklets containing the guidance can be ordered on 0845 6000 925.
More details next week.
