Mobile workers and travel time

Employees who have no fixed place of work now have their journey from home to the first client and from the last client to home classed as ‘working time’. Employers need to check whether the working time of such employees  is compliant with the Working Time Regulations and that they are receiving the appropriate rest periods.

Note that this ECJ decision does not imply that payment has to be made for these journeys. It will depend on the individual contract.
