What Working Time Directive information do I need when taking on a new driver?
A5: There is a legal requirement for the new driver to provide to you (the employer) what their Working Hours details have been over the past weeks/months. For example if you are at week 7 of your reference period you must obtain their total number of weeks worked, total number of days worked and the total working hours (driving hours!!!!!) over weeks 1 to 6. If their previous employers were/are conforming to the legislation then the necessary data should be easily obtained.
