ABSTRACT
This article reports that following a court case ruling, given in 2000, which leaves truckers and employment agencies across Great Britain at risk of criminal prosecution, trucking companies may have to make changes to how they make use of agency drivers. The court case means that employment agencies supplying a trucking company with drivers who remain employees of the agency are committing a criminal offense. At the same time, the company could also be committing a criminal offense of aiding the employment agency. These revelation stem from a clash of laws highlighted in the recent case involving the express parcel company Interlink and the Night Truckers agency. One law states that a driver's employer is the goods vehicle user while another says that anyone using a goods vehicle must have an operator's license.
