The following paper discusses the way in which three British employees working in the UK (all hypothetical examples ) were ordered to work 60 hours a week.

The writer explain what rights (if any) these persons have under EC Law to claim against their former employer.

From the Paper:

"As Valentina works as a trainee doctor in a teaching hospital, her Employers would be able to derogate from the Directive 93/104 article 6 (2), as stated in 93/104, article 17 (2). As doctors in training are omitted from directive 93/104, Derogations may be adopted by means of laws, regulations or administrative provisions or by means of collective agreements or agreements between the two sides of industry provided that the workers concerned are afforded equivalent periods of compensatory rest or that, in exceptional cases in which it is not possible, for objective reasons, to grant such equivalent periods of compensatory rest, the workers concerned are afforded appropriate protection."
