The new Working Time Regulations came into force on 1 October 1998. Although the implementation of Regulations has been imminent ever since Labour came to power, the business and legal communities have remained largely ignorant of its widespread and immediate effects. The Regulations give workers new rights to: a limit of 48 hours on the average working week limits on night work three weeks paid annual leave (four in 1999) rest breaks and rest days health and safety assessments The Working Time Regulations will affect practically every business in the country. If employers fail to comply with the provisions they may run the risk of facing employment tribunal proceedings or even prosecution by the health and safety executive.This new Guide provides lawyers, personnel specialists and employers with a clear and concise explanation of the practical implications of the Directive and the supporting Regulations. It also takes account of the DTIs Regulatory Guidance. The Guide Contains a Copy of the Regulations, The Working Time Directive and The Young Workers Directive.
