24 February 2017: Happy Work Your Proper Hours Day!

A whopping £33.6 billion. That’s how much free labour was given to employers last year from unpaid overtime. 

Today is Work Your Proper Hours Day. It’s the day in the year when the average person doing unpaid overtime stops effectively working for free and starts earning for themselves.

More than 5.3 million employees in the UK work unpaid overtime.

If you’re one of them, make sure you take a proper lunch break and leave work on time.

Can’t remember the last time you finished work on time?
