Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 26 April 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what work it has undertaken to discuss with (a) its agencies, (b) local government, (c) other public sector employers and (d) private sector employers regarding the impact of the European Court of Justice judgement, Ville de Nivelles v Rudy Matzak, Case C-518/15.

The terms and conditions of employees, including interpretation of Working Time regulations, are matters for employers. It would be for individual Public Bodies to seek legal advice on any obligations they may have relating to European Court of Justice judgements.
