Internet: Broadband

Volume 715: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to ensure that the installation of broadband in private homes will not be used by employers to breach the working time directive. [HL750]

The working time regulations require that employers keep records to show the weekly working time and night work limits are complied with regardless of where an individual works. Employers must also check how a worker's working time is arranged and whether they are able to take the rest breaks they are entitled to.
