Weekly work time limit
- A mobile worker’s and a self-employed driver’s working time is limited to an average of 48 hours a week. You calculate this average over the reference period.
- A mobile worker or self-employed driver may work up to 60 hours in a single working week, as long as they maintain the 48-hour weekly average over the reference period. The mobile worker must not work more than 60 hours in a single week.
- Breaks and periods of availability (where the mobile worker or self-employed driver does not have to be at their workstation but must be available to take calls or start work) known about in advance do not count as working time.
- Mobile workers and self-employed drivers must also obey the EU Rules on Drivers Hours (see RSA Guide to the EU Rules on Drivers Hours Regulations)
