Session 4: Working Time and Minimum Wage: The tricky issues

The 9 to 5 workplace is a thing of the past for many employers. Technology increasingly allows remote, peripatetic and home-based working. Customers often require staff to be “on call” or to be available on the premises to deal with emergencies. And cost pressures mean employers must constantly look for more efficient ways of rostering their workforce.

But employers must act within the law and ensure working time limits are not exceeded and the National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage is paid for all appropriate hours to avoid potentially disastrous fines and bad publicity. The following questions will be discussed:

  • How to ensure peripatetic workers don't exceed statutory working time limits
  • For which hours does the National Minimum Wage need to be paid?
  • When is a working time “opt-out” appropriate?
  • Does the National Minimum Wage need to be paid for time between service calls?
  • Do staff on sleep-in duties need to be paid when they are sleeping?
  • How should staff “on call” at home be paid?
