Care providers urged to consult HMRC on sleep-in shifts

HMRC is offering to help social care providers who may not have paid workers a National Minimum Wage  for sleep-in shifts.

Underpaying employers in the social care sector can avoid fines of up to £20,000 per worker if they join the Government’s social care compliance scheme (SCCS).

The move comes after the court of appeal reversed a ruling on payment for sleep-in shifts last month.
