Ensure that workers are receiving the minimum rest breaks provided for by the Working Time Regulations 1998

Key points

  • The Working Time Regulations 1998 set out the minimum length of rest breaks to which workers are entitled during a working day.
  • Workers in some sectors, for example some mobile workers in the civil aviation sector, are excluded from the right to a minimum rest break under the Regulations.
  • There are a number of other circumstances in which the right does not apply, for example where the worker's activities involve the need for continuity of service or production.
