ECJ 2 March 2017, case C-97/16 (Perez Retamero), Employment status

José María Pérez Retamero – v – TNT Express Worldwide Spain SL and Others, Spanish case

  • Abstract

      Based on a challenge to the dismissal of a transporter of goods, certain questions were referred to the ECJ under Directive 2002/15 on the organisation of working time for persons performing mobile road transport activities. However, the questions related, not to dismissal, but to how ‘mobile workers’ were defined in the Directive (as the worker sought to establish that he was employed and therefore entitled to full employment rights). The Court ruled that, as the Directive related to how working time is organised, rather than dismissal, the questions were inadmissible.
