Expectations were low, so its hard to be surprised but yesterdays’ announcement of the Social Care Compliance Scheme will have left most providers with a new headache to consider in respect of sleep in compliance - should you carry out a self-review? What are the potential benefits and drawbacks of doing so?

In our briefing note, Sleep-in announcement 1 November 2017: The key questions, we explain some of the many unanswered questions relating to the Government’s announcement, which in our view need to be answered by the Government before a decision to self-review could be taken.

Our team has significant experience in challenging HMRC and advising on NMW issues alongside other strategic and operational employment advice to health and social care providers.
