Employers in certain sectors can rely on the exemption from the ordinary rest break requirements in the Working Time Regulations (or 20 minutes for every 6 hours worked) as long as they provide equivalent compensatory rest. The EAT has confirmed that, in the same way as for ordinary rest breaks, compensatory rest breaks must be a continuous uninterrupted period of at least 20 minutes and cannot be satisfied by a number of shorter breaks totalling more than 20 minutes. Organisations that rely on the compensatory rest provisions should review their policies to ensure compliance. (Crawford v Network Rail Infrastructure)
