Travelling time is 'Working Time' rules the European Court of Justice
Travelling Time – the time spent travelling to and from a first and last appointment by workers without a fixed office is to be regarded as “working time” the European Court of Justice has ruled.
This time has not previously been considered as “work” by many employers.
This means that firms, including those employing care workers, gas fitters and sales reps etc may be in breach of EU working time regulations if they do not pay.
Tamsin James said, “the ruling could have a huge effect”. If you are an employee who may have a claim for travel do telephone Tamsin James for a chat on 0117 9390350.
