Consultation Begins on the Working Time Directive

Legislation News

The EU Commission has issued a consultation on the Working Time Directive, with the aim of producing an impact assessment of options for reform. This marks a change in activity given the stalemate over recent years – in essence, there is agreement that the Directive is no longer fit for purpose, but there has been to date no agreement on how to fix it.

The consultation closes in March next year and the impact assessment is expected during 2015.
