Acas Bitesize: Working Time Regulations and employer obligations


This one-hour session will provide valuable guidance on the Working Time Regulations and what they mean for you as an employer, your employees and workers. 

We will cover key aspects of employment law and essential considerations for employers, with a focus on the regulations concerning people working two or more jobs.

Business need

The Working Time Regulations are complex. It is important that all employers understand their legal obligations as failing to get things right can lead to employment tribunal claims which can be costly.

Having a good understanding of the regulations can help employers better manage their staff and operations enabling them to position themselves as an employer of choice. 

This bitesize session will focus on the regulations for people working two or more jobs, including which employer is responsible for not exceeding limits, how to calculate reference periods and opt outs and how to ensure your contracts cover all the key points.

Delivered digitally via Zoom this event will help you gain a better understanding of the Working Time Regulations and your obligations as an employer.
