Burrow Down Support Services Ltd v Rossiter - Time spent sleeping was still time spent working for minimum wage requirements  EAT
For 5 years until 2006 Mr Rossiter worked at a Care Home, from 10pm to 8am 2 nights a week. He was responsible for security overnight. Other than for a short handover period and helping with breakfast, he was entitled to be asleep unless his duties required him to be awake. He was paid £20 per night. He claimed that he had not been paid the national minimum wage. An employment tribunal agreed. Burrow Down appealed.
