Professionals are feeling the effects of longer working days and unpaid overtime, according to new research.

A new study by law firm, Wright Hassall, found that the average worker is performing 9 or more hours of overtime in a given week, which totals more than one working day, compared to just 3 or more hours before the start of the pandemic.

The research also found that more than half (52%) are actually doing so without being paid for this.

The survey conducted by the firm reveals that 48% of business professionals cite lockdown as the main reason for their extended working day, as 41% say they are working extra hours to help support their company during an extremely challenging time.
