    Default regulations

    Dear Teachers,

    - How are the working regulations in your company / of your company?
    - Is this sentence grammatical?

    Thanks a million!

    Are you asking whether the person likes the regulations? Or are you asking what the regulations are?

    Well, it's grammatical, but it sounds as though you're not sure what a 'regulation' is: regulation: Definition and Much More from Answers.com. In your question, it sounds as if you are asking about the laws/rules that govern the workplace (answers.com meaning 2). In that case you'd be more likely to ask about 'working conditions' (are there too many rules, for example?).

    But I suspect you have in mind meaning 1 - 'The act of regulating, or the state of being regulated'. In that case you'd be more likely to ask 'What do you think about the structure/hierarchy/organization/ management' of your company?'
