Working Time Regulations

The Working Time Regulations came into force within the United Kingdom on the 1st October 1998. They have a number of implications for how Heads of Schools/Units manage the staff in the School/Unit.

The University policy on compliance with the requirements of the Regulations and their subsequent amendments (in 1999 and 2002) is available from Human Resources.
