Commuting time is part of working time

The commuting time of professional drivers from their home to their workplace has already been subject to European jurisprudence. The latter is interesting on many levels.

Indeed, on 10 September 2015, the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled that the commuting time between their home and the first or last customer of the day of workers with no fixed or usual place of work is to be considered as working time.

To exclude the commuting time from the working hours would be therefore contrary to the EU law’s goal of health and safety protection for these workers.
