Other guidance and information
TUC guidance on facility time for reps (April 2017)
In March 2017, the working time, breaks and holidays - know your rights booklet was published by the TUC. The law relating to your working time is complicated. Some bad employers take advantage of this to deny staff their rights. Others may not understand what the law requires. Step by step, the booklet explains weekly hours limits and night working limits; and your rights to breaks, rest periods and paid holiday. The booklet is just a short guide, not a full statement of the law. If your rights are being ignored get advice from the NUJ.
