Good Luck.
The European Union has [ruling / ruled] that workers with no [fixing / fixed] office should be paid for travelling to and [from / fro] their first and last appointments of their day. This could have a huge [impact / compact] on the payroll expenses of companies across Europe. The European Court of Justice said that the journeys of workers [which / who] do not have a fixed place of work, and who travel between their home and their customers’ [promises / premises] , are to be paid work. This means [potently / potentially] higher salaries for care workers, sales staff, plumbers, [nannies / mummies] and other company employees who work from home. The court said it was to protect the health and [safe / safety] of workers and ensure they did not work longer than 48 hours [per / par] week per.

The [ruling / ruled] means that thousands of companies across Europe could be forced to [charge / change] their business arrangements. Many will have to rearrange the working schedules of employees to [insure / ensure] that their first and last appointments are [near / nearly] their homes. A British employment lawyer, Chris Tutton, told the BBC that: "[Unless / Useless] bosses adjust working hours or ask employees to opt [in / out] of the 48-hour working week, employees could quickly [exceed / succeed] the number of hours they are legally [allowed / allowance] to work. Bosses could therefore soon find that they are operating illegally and be [at / to] risk of facing costly claims against them." The ruling does not affect people's daily commute to their [normally / normal] , fixed place of work.
