National minimum wage – waiting and travel time

5th November 2020

Settlement has recently been reached in a case brought by care workers against three homecare service providers regarding entitlement to national minimum wage for time spent travelling and/or waiting between appointments.

The settlement totalled over £100,000. With no end to the coronavirus pandemic in sight, care workers will continue to provide essential services to many vulnerable people in their homes and this decision could have costly implications for employers.

Blake Morgan Employment law solicitor Madeleine Mould examines the issues in an article first published in Reward Strategy on 30 October.
