With a possible £400 million bill for charities in the UK to pick up, this podcast discussing the landmark ruling in Royal Mencap Society v Tomlinson-Blake is essential listening for the third sector. The forthcoming decision relates to social care workers on “sleep-in shifts”, whereby they provide overnight on-call support to patients but are expected to sleep through the majority of the shift.
