Employees in the UK, pre-pandemic, worked the equivalent of £35 billion in unpaid overtime. These figures have risen during the pandemic. According to global figures by the ADP Research Institute, one in 10 people now claim that they work at least 20 hours a week over and above their core hours. 

Jeremy Coy and Lucy Hunter-Jones consider the potential pitfalls for employers and how they can mitigate these risks. 

How HR can prevent staff from working extra hours is available to read on the HR Magazine website.
