Under the Working Time Regulations 1998 a worker’s average weekly working time (including overtime) calculated over a rolling 17 week period must not exceed 48 hours.
The Regulations provide that this limit will not apply where a worker has agreed with his Employer, in writing, that it should not apply in his case.
I am therefore asking you to agree to opt out to enable you to decide on your own hours of work.
You may withdraw your agreement by giving the Company seven days advance notice in writing. Please confirm your agreement by confirming on our application form.
