Charities are being urged to ensure that they are paying staff the National Minimum Wage for sleep-in shifts.

The issue of pay for members-of-staff who work shifts that incorporate a residential element has been the subject of debate for some time.

In 2010, the trade union Unite – which has some 60,000 members in the not-for-profit sector – voiced fears that many employees who do this work are not getting paid the legal minimum.

Five years on, and with fresh debate about raising the NMW after the General Election, cases are still going to tribunal because charity staff are not being paid what they are entitled to.
