On-Call Policy and Procedure #2
This policy outlines the current law in relation to on-call/sleep-in work. Please be aware that this is an area of the law which could change imminently pending the outcome of the Supreme Court decision in Shannon v Rampersad and another (T/A Clifton House Residential Home). On-call and sleep-in work is obviously a major part of a number of health and social care businesses and it is essential that businesses understand the rules around working time when on-call or on a sleep-in shift and practical steps to ensure compliance. The policy has been reviewed with minor content changes and an additional policy statement added. References updated to ensure they remain current.
