Minimum wage and on-call time of care workers - Royal Mencap Society v Tomlinson-Blake [CA] 13.07.18 (Unreported)
Care workers who were required to sleep at, or near, their workplace and be available to provide assistance if required, were available for work rather than actually working. Accordingly, they were not entitled to be paid the national minimum wage for the whole of the sleep-in shift, but only for the time when they were required to be awake for the purpose of working.http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2018/1641.html
