Query on 11 hour rest period

27 May 2003, 14:39 CET

I am employed and work shifts. My employer has insisted the working hours directive imposes an 11 hour rest period between shifts.<BR>On occassions it is to my benefit to swap shifts but when I do there is less than 11 hours between shifts. My employer says I can no longer swap shifts when I wish to due to the working hours directive.<BR>Please someone tell me this is not the case. If it is I am being disadvantaged by legislation that is supposed to protect me. <br>John Conlon<br>
