The Directive states that the security industry is not bound to comply with regulations relating to night workers working longer than eight hours in twenty four, rest periods of eleven hours per day or one day per week or a rest period every six hours worked, provided you are allowed the same rest time at a later date.

Under these regulations Shield Security Services must obtain your written permission if you wish to work more than 48 hours per week. The agreement to opt out is optional.
