Today we have an outcome on the long awaited case that many charitites have been holding their breath on. Around if time spent sleeping-in should attract the NMW and NLW,
You can read Mencap's press statement here:
In summary the Court of Appeal has ruled that the NMW and NLW does NOT apply to sleep-in shifts unless the worker is awake for the purposes of working.
This will have wider ramifications where workers or employees sleep-in.
Nothing yet from the HMRXC on whether this case will be appealed to the Supreme Court, so if you have an update on this please do share.
All the best
