Pay attention or pay the price.
Mobile workers must inform their employer in writing of any hours worked for another employer or work done for themselves such as driving a taxi so that these hours can be included when calculating the worker’s total working time. Remember, the regulations apply to the total time worked, not just the time worked for each employer. Hours worked for another employer or for themselves will count towards a worker’s average weekly working limit laid down by the directive.
What working time information should a driver give a new employer?
Under the regulations, the new driver must provide the employer with details of their working hours over the past weeks or months. For example, if the driver starts at the beginning of week 11 of a reference period, they should provide the new employer with details of the total weeks or days they worked in the previous 10 weeks.
