    So I'm 17 and in my second year of sixth form, and I was originally employed as a Christmas Temp (but that may have changed because it doesn't say so on the rota). During the Christmas week, I've been given 47 hours. I read online that a 16-17 year old can only work 40 hours max per week, and I was wondering if it changes over xmas- can someone help please?

    No it doesn't. Not only can a 17-year old not be made to work more than eight hours a day, they can't even legally choose to do so.

    I remember smashing out 18 hours shifts at 16 years old when working for McDonalds but things have changed massively since then.
