The Working Time Regulations 1998 stipulate basic limits on working time and entitlement to periods of rest between working time, in-work breaks and to paid annual leave.
In line with these regulations, you can choose to work more than 48 hours a week on average if you’re over 18. This is called ‘opting out’. You can opt out for a certain period or indefinitely. It must be voluntary and in writing, therefore you should read our document and then sign it and supply us with a copy of the signed form, if you wish to opt out.
