This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Landeshauptstadt Kiel v Jaeger [2003] IRLR 804, the European Court of Justice holds that on-call duty, performed by doctors who were required to be physically present in the hospital and who were permitted to rest or sleep in rooms provided for them there during periods when their services were not required, constituted, in its entirety, working time under the EC Working Time Directive.
