Working Time Rest Breaks

20 May 2019 Employment Law

In the recent case of Network Rail Infrastructure v Crawford, it was decided by the Court of Appeal that a break does not need to be uninterrupted. 

There was a requirement that workers have the right for an unpaid rest break of 20 minutes when working longer than 6 hours.  This change gives employers a significantly greater degree of flexibility when organising when work is to be done.
