I don't believe you. How can someone be paid £3.79??

Is there a loop hole in the law?

Well, this is not me saying this anon?

I think the argument is over "sleep-ins" where staff sleep over night at a 24/7 residential project.

In the past some employers just paid a single payment per night. I assume that is where the £3.79 per hour figure has come from.

It has now been held by Court that in specific circumstances staff must be paid the minimum wage per hour for sleep overs.

Quite right too.
