Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.

Don’t worry about the pop-up mentioning a phone call – this is an automatic offer made by the system, giving you the opportunity to pay extra to discuss things over the phone. However, it is entirely optional and if you just ignore it and close it down you will not be charged extra and we will just continue in writing at no extra cost when you are able to tell me what your job role is?

Many thanks for your patience. Under law, you only get rest breaks once you have worked for at least 6 hours continuously. So if you are only working for 4 hours, then you do not have the legal right to get a rest break as you have not worked the minimum number of hours required to be eligible for one.
