Update on payment for sleep-in shifts in social care (August 2018)
A Local Government Association briefing updates councils on the latest developments regarding payment of sleep-in shifts in adult social care. It follows the case of Royal Mencap Society v Tomlinson-Blake in which the Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the Employment Appeal Tribunal. The Court held that workers doing sleep-ins were to be characterised for the purpose of the National Minimum Wage Regulations 2015 as available for work rather than actually working, and so fell within the exception provided by reg.32(2).Link to Update
