Agreement to opt out of the Working Time Directive
Employers should use this document to draft an agreement for their employees to formally opt out of the 48-hour working week under the Working Time Regulations. This document cannot be used for workers who can choose freely how long they work (e.g. managing executives of a company), domestic servants in private households, workers in the armed forces, police and emergency services, trainee doctors and mobile workers in the transport industry (road, rail, air or sea).
As part of this service, Nelsons will complete a Limited Review which will include reviewing the answers you input to the system, answering any reasonable questions you may have and making minor changes required to ensure you receive a document that is suitable your requirements based on the answers you gave the system.
