Working hours and breaks

Information on current labour regulations regarding working hours and breaks must be available and employees must be aware of this.

Your inspector will check how this is explained to employees and by whom.

Your records must show that you are compliant with legal regulations for the following points:

  • Working hours, including overtime

  • Rest breaks/days, which must be guaranteed during peak season

  • Regular weekly working time does not exceed 48 hours

  • During peak season, weekly working time does not exceed 60 hours

For each of these points, you will also need to confirm how compliance is checked, reviewed and by whom.
