Royal Mencap Society v Tomlinson-Blake; Shannon v Jaikishan and Prithee Rampersad (trading as Clifton House Residential Home)

Employment – Remuneration. The only time that counted for national minimum wage purposes was time when the worker was required to be awake for the purposes of working. In particular, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that such time did not include the time they were contractually obliged to spend the night at or near their workplace on the basis that they were expected to sleep for all or most of the period, but might be woken if required to undertake some specific activity.
