    I've just got a job at a restaurant and even though 16 year olds can only work 2 hours on a Sunday, does this still apply even if it's washing pots? Sounds silly but I'm going to be needed for more than 2 hours on a Sunday to wash up...

    There's no law to say you can only work 2 hours in a Sunday. I know when I was 16 I was working 5/6 hours on a Sunday.

    It changed when the school leaving age did apparently, I think it's a silly law really.

    There are rules for how many hours under 16's can work.
    But once you are 16, you can work as many hours as you like. As long as you have a break every 4.5 hours, thats the only law there is i believe.
