ABSTRACT
This article discusses why specialists belonging to the Barker Gotelee Solicitors, a company which provides legal services to the transport sector, advice haulage operators to take note of what they could be liable for when using agency drivers. The specialists gave this advice in connection to the case involving the express parcel company Interlink and the Night Trunkers agency which supplied the haulier with drivers, which left hauliers and employment agencies across the country at risk of criminal prosecution. The ruling meant that employment agencies supplying a haulage company with drivers who remain employees of the agency would be committing a criminal offense. At the same time, the haulier might also be committing a criminal offense of aiding and abetting the employment agency.
