WORKING TIME: A moving target

02 October 2015  

An ECJ ruling means that travelling to and from work may now count as working time, reports Glenn Hayes

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Federacion de Servicios Privados v Tyco Integrated Security [2015] has confirmed that travel to and from work does count as working time but only for mobile workers with no fixed or regular workplace. This means that employers of such workers will have to include travel to the first and from the last customer of the day in their calculations of working time, which may have knock-on effects on pay, breaks and maximum working hours.
