Working Time and Holidays: A Practical Legal Guide acts as a concise, affordable, and practical guide to the Working Time Regulations 1998. There were 55,712 claims registered in the Employment Tribunals as "Working Time" claims in 2008, and the area is increasingly one on which almost all employment lawyers will need to advise. The book aims to demystify what is viewed as a difficult and technical area of the law.

The book examines topics such as the maximum working week, rest and breaks, annual leave, night work, young workers, and unfair dismissal, detriment and enforcement. The substantial body of case law in the ten years since the implementation of the Regulations, and the amending legislation (including the Working Time (Amendment) Regulations 2007) is brought together and discussed.

Working Time and Holidays: A Practical Legal Guide is structured so that answers to questions can be easily found and understood - using case studies, frequently asked questions, and checklists. The book also contains appendices which include both the text of the Regulations, and useful precedents such as an opt out agreement, contractual clauses, annual leave policy, and a record keeping checklist.
