Daylight Saving begins this weekend - 29th September

27 Sep 2019

This year daylight saving begins at 2.00am on Sunday 29 September 2019, when clocks are put forward by one hour.



This means that 2.00am becomes 3.00am. In addition, the Time Act provides that employees will actually work one hour less, but must still be paid the time that they would otherwise have worked on the day.



For example, employees required to work until 3.00am, will work one hour less as a result of clocks going forward, but must still be paid as if daylight saving had not put time forward one hour.





This also affects licensed hours and means that where licenses permit trading to 3.00am, premises must effectively stop trading at 2.00am when 2.00am becomes 3.00am.





For more information or assistance, please call your Regional Manager on 0800 500 503.
