Working Time Regulations

At Park Street People we ensure that we support our contract and temporary workforce throughout your time working for us with our client companies. The Working Time Directive is the European Directive that brought the Working Time Regulations to the UK in October 1998.

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.
