TRAVEL TIME PAY RULING WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON UK BUSINESSES

A new Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruling could have a significant impact on UK companies employing workers who don’t have a fixed place of work and who travel to and from appointments, says Andrew Willis Head of Croner Litigation at Wolters Kluwer.

The CJEU has ruled that time spent travelling to and from appointments by workers without a fixed place of work should be regarded as ‘working time’ for the purposes of the Working Time Directive. Such arrangements are common in the care and sales sectors, but the case is significant for any business employing people in this way.
