Tribunal ruling permits breaks for security guards

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. The security industry is not exempt from the Working Time Regulations, andall security guards are entitled to rest breaks while on duty, an employmenttribunal has ruled. A Newcastle employment tribunal ruled in favour of security guard GavinRuddick in his claim against Reliance Security Services for breaching workingtime regulations. The tribunal decided that although the security industry is not subject tothe law that requires workers to have a 20-minute rest break every six hours,it must do “the next best thing”, such as allowing a number ofshorter rest periods or one longer period. The GMB union lodged the claim on behalf of Ruddick after he complained tohis managers that there was no official policy in place to allow him restbreaks to go to the toilet. He was left in no doubt that if property wasdamaged while he was away from his post, he would be blamed for the loss. Andrew Lightburn, Ruddick’s solicitor at Thompsons, the GMB’s law firm,said: “This decision clarifies the law on this matter, giving all securityguards on contracts requiring a permanent presence the right to some form ofrest break.” Comments are closed.
