The Government has updated its statutory guidance on calculating the National Minimum Wage (NMW).
This covers eligibility for the NMW, calculating the amount payable, the working hours for which the NMW must be paid and enforcing payment of the NMW.
The section on working hours for which the NMW must be paid covers sleeping between duties and has been updated to reflect recent case law on this aspect of the legislation. It provides an example of when the NMW is likely to apply and an example of when it is not.
