star this property answer text <p>Employment law which derives from the EU is implemented in the UK, in statute if necessary. This includes the Agency Workers Directive and the Working Time Directive, which have been transposed into UK law. There is therefore no need to replicate them after the UK leaves the EU. We have committed not to roll back workers’ rights and that commitment includes the protections provided for by the Working Time Directive and the Agency Workers Directive. We also recently laid the Agency Workers (Amendment) Regulations 2019 which if passed will increase protections for agency workers on pay between assignment contracts.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills is in regular contact with the European Commission on a range of issues. In 2014 the European Commission requested national reports on the practical implementation of the Working Time Directive. The Government provided its response on 31 October 2014, setting out recent developments in case law, and evidence of the impacts of the Working Time Directive. That evidence was recently published by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/389676/bis-14-1287-the-impact-of-the-working-time-regulations-on-the-uk-labour-market-a-review-of-evidence.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/389676/bis-14-1287-the-impact-of-the-working-time-regulations-on-the-uk-labour-market-a-review-of-evidence.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The response re-iterated the Government’s priorities for the future of the Working Time Directive. They are to maintain the economy-wide individual right to opt-out of the 48 hour working week, and seek more flexibility following EU court rulings around on-call time, compensatory rest and holiday pay.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
