ABSTRACT
This article focused on the warning issued by the Barker Gotelee Solicitors that road transport companies throughout Great Britain should be planning how to cope with changes to their businesses when they come under a new directive from the European Union. The changes, according to Paul Davies, mean that in the future it will cost transport companies more to provide the same level of service as they do today. So far, the road transport sector has not been affected by the Working Time regulations which set maximum working hours and minimum rest periods. But this will soon change when proposals currently being discussed come into operation. Among the changes that will affect the entire transport sector are a maximum average working week of 48 hours, limits on night-time working, longer rest breaks, twenty days a year paid holiday and health checks for night workers.
