The present work analyses the EU legislative framework on working time (dir. 2003/88/EC) and the related interpretation made by the European Court of Justice. More precisely, the paper focuses on the legal concepts of working time, night work, daily and weekly rests and special disciplines; moreover, a particular attention is given to the waivers that – in compliance with the directive – are attributed to collective bargaining and to the individual (“opt-out”), in order to highlight that EU law has highly liberalized Member States regulation of working time.
