IRU Position on the revision of the EU Working Time Directive with regard to fake and genuine self-employed drivers, night work and enforcement, (2010)

In 2009 the European Commission proposed to modify the EU Road Transport Working Time Directive (2002/15/EC) to permanently exclude self-employed drivers to help bring ‘false’ self-employed drivers within its scope. This IRU Position advocates the exclusion of the self-employed drivers from the Working Time Directive and addresses issues such as the current negative definition of ‘self-employed’ drivers that hinders the identification of fake self-employed drivers, removing impracticalities related night work rules, and improving enforcement of these rules by Member States.
