Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What rest periods in particular are you asking about?
the time between shifts
How does the working time opt out work
The opt out works in a way that once you opt out it is considered that you remain opted out until you decide to opt back in by giving the employer the appropriate notice. So once you opt out you remain opted out but that does not guarantee you more than 48 hours a week - it means that the employer could give you more than 48 hours but it does not mean that they have to
The rest periods remain unchanged even if you have opted out
what are the minimum rest periods.
do you break the law by doing 60 hours a week even though i have signed the opt out

You have signed the opt out o are willing to work more than 48 hours - why would you be acting illegally if you work more than that?
After all you have agreed to work these hours
or am I misunderstanding your question?
So you do not need any further help?
