The HR Forum

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
