Police request

A policeman in Germany has won the right to gain extra holiday due to the time it takes to put on and take off their work uniforms.

Martin Schauder, convinced judges in Munster he should be paid for the extra time it takes to put on his full work kit and take it off at home, amounting to 45 to 50 hours a year.

Around 1,000 police officers in the state of Nord Rhine Westphalia have made similar complaints.
Legal expert Joachim Wulfmeyer said: "We could, in theory, have judges arguing for extra time off because of the amount of time it takes them to robe up, or receptionists claiming overtime for lipstick application as they have to look good for clients."
