How many breaks am I allowed per the working-hour laws?
If the employee's daily working time is over six hours, they are entitled to a continuous 20-minute break. Under the Working Hours Regulations, an employee has a right to 11 hours of rest during each 24-hour work period. Entitlement to rest intervals, however, does not apply in several unique situations, such as when the work is necessary for maintaining a level of service or production or when there is an expected increase in activity. If a shift worker switches shifts, they might not take advantage of their entire allotted amount of time off before reporting to work under the new schedule. The entitlement to daily and weekly relaxation does not apply to this situation.
