Working Time (Amendment) Regulations 2002 come into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2003

The amendment Regulations implement those provisions of the Young Workers Directive (94/33/EC) from which the UK had previously opted out. They prohibit young workers from working more than eight hours a day or 40 hours a week, and at night between 10 pm and 6 am, except in limited circumstances. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
