Working Time Regulations

An employee should receive equal pay for equal work. This requirement can apply to situations where an employee is carrying out “like work” and not necessarily the same job.

How can we help?

 

What are Working Time Regulations?

Working time regulations concern the amount of hours employees can work. Employees can only work more than a certain number of hours per week if they have given their written consent to do so. Certain limits apply where they are carrying out regular night work. Employees should also be allowed to take rest breaks and should be granted a prescribed number of days of paid annual leave.

If you believe that you are being asked to work long hours, during the night or in hazardous conditions and are not being given adequate rest breaks or annual leave then please contact us to discuss your options.

 

Equal pay and wages – are you being paid correctly?

If you believe that you are being paid less than a colleague who is of the opposite sex, you should contact a member of our Employment Law team who can advise you on this complex area of law.

Employees also have the right to be paid an amount which is equal to or more than the current National Minimum Wage. If you believe that you are being paid less than the minimum wage, we can assess your situation and may be able to assist you in recovering wages at the Employment Tribunal.

In addition, if you feel that your employers have unlawfully deducted some of your pay then please contact our Employment Law team to discuss your options.

Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

Family & Divorce

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
