This question was answered on 2nd December 2021

DWP agreed a Flexible Working Hours Scheme with its trade unions to manage employees’ daily working hours and breaks. This conforms to the Working Time Regulations 1998.

Under the Scheme, all employees are required to keep a daily record of the times they work. This is monitored and checked by their line manager to ensure that on a four-weekly basis the aggregated hours worked are within the limits of the Scheme.

The size and national spread of the DWP’s workforce and current recording method require compliance to be assessed by line managers as a core part of their job.
