EAT minimum wage case - Shannon v Rampersad (t/a Clifton House Residential Home) [EAT] 24.09.15 (Unreported)

Thu, 15 Oct 2015

A care home assistant who lived in an on-site flat and was required to be in that flat between certain hours at night to respond to requests for assistance was not entitled to be paid for the hours during which he was not responding to a request or was asleep. Mere presence did not of itself necessarily entitle a worker to the national minimum wage for the whole shift.
