I think it is 12 hours.I used to work for ASDA and on a Friday night I would finish at 10.15 and be in for 9.00 the next morning..
11 hours, see here. So if you finish at 8.15 on the Friday you shouldn't technically start work until 7.15 the following morning at the earliest.
Seems so mmmwine, good job I don't work there anymore!
Flowery - the hospital I work at has late shifts that finish at 9.45pm and early shifts that start at 7am. You are usually given a late shift followed by an early shift. Should they be doing that?
agedknees probably not, no; check the link carefully as there are some exceptions but assuming none of them apply, then no they shouldn't be organising their shifts like that.
there are a list of exceptions including jobs where 24 hrs cover is required ie hospitals. it even suggests peak times in retail may mean exceptions apply.
Appendix 5 here is quite good.
Thanks for your help flowery. I escaped from the wards and now work 8.30 - 5pm, but I feel for my colleagues back on the wards.
I used to do lates then earlies,someone would sleep in but the others would go home & come back. That was 2-10 then 7-2:30.
