Atti and I had digressed off topic and were not referring to OP, but to people on call, for example, people sleeping at a care home: available in case of need, but clearly not working. The guidance Atti linked to earlier appears to have that covered well enough.

I did not digress, given that one of the OP's points concerns his employer's decision that he is only working when there is a customer in the shop.

The next day in the group chat the employer came up with a new set of rules, even more ridiculous that the previous ones, what do I mean by ridiculous? one of the rules stated that if I am on the till, and there are no customers in the shop and basicaly there is no work for me to be done I won't get paid for the time "I was just standing there", and I am the person who has to keep track of how much time I worked and how long "I was just standing there",
