Employment relations research series no. 23. The extent of long hours working in Britain remains substantial, particularly for certain types of employees. In some instances sustained long hours working is potentially avoidable, although there can be considerable barriers to be overcome in doing so. There has been a reduction in long hours working over recent years, with the Working Time Regulations contributing to this decline. The working time opt-out is often used by employers as a precautionary measure.
