Useful information

Opting out of the Working Time Directive

The Working Time Directive prevents employees from being forced to work for more than 48 hours in a week, unless they freely consent to opt out of the directive.

Most documents take about 15 - 45 minutes

You can try the service out beforehand, and can save your progress at any time and come back to the document later.
