Sunday Working – rules and regulations

Sunday working – If you are asked to work on a Sunday, do you have to? Here is a run-down of your rights.

Sunday Trading rules in England and Wales:

  • Large shops with over 280 square metres or more of floor space have legal restrictions on their opening hours. Most can only open on a Sunday for a continuous period of 6 hours between 10am and 6pm. They are also not allowed to open on Easter Sunday or Christmas Day.
  • Some shops are exempt from these rules, including off-licences; airport, railway and service station outlets; farm shops; some pharmacies; exhibition stands.
  • Small shops are free to open when they choose.
  • Consultation on reforming Sunday Trading Laws started on 5th August 2015 and continued until 16th September 2015. This was intended to give powers to local areas to allow larger shops to open for longer on Sundays in England and Wales. The Government were defeated in their plans to reform Sunday Trading Laws on 9th March 2016.
