The TUC publishes a series of free booklets explaining your rights at work and dealing with other common workplace problems. The Working time, breaks and holidays – Know Your Rights booklet explains weekly hours limits and night working limits; and your rights to breaks, rest periods and paid holiday.
The law relating to your working time is complicated. Some bad employers take advantage of this to deny staff their rights. Others may not understand what the law requires.
