Daylight saving ends - Sunday 7 April 2019

1 Apr 2019

Daylight saving ends on Sunday 7 April 2019 at 3.00am. This means that clocks will go back by one hour on Sunday morning, from 3.00am to 2.00am.


The Time Act provides that any employees that work after this time, for example who finish at 3.00am will work an extra hour and must be paid for this extra time. 


This also means that where licences permit trading to 3.00am, premises effectively have an extra hour of trading from 2.00am to 3.00am.


If you have any queries, please call your Regional Manager on 0800 500 503.
