In the recent case of J Esparon t/a Middle West Residential Care Home v Slavikovska, the Employment Appeal Tribunal found that a senior care assistant who carried out sleepover shifts was entitled to receive the national minimum wage for all her nights shift hours, regardless of whether or not she was actually working during that time.

In an article in People Management, I look at what this means for employers, particularly those in the care sector.
