BCC reacts to ECJ Working Time ruling

Commenting on the European Court of Justice ruling that time spent travelling to work counts as working time for mobile workers, Dr Adam Marshall, Executive Director of Policy and External Affairs at the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

"This ruling underscores the importance of greater national decision-making on employment laws. Once again, a faraway court is taking decisions that could impact business prospects, job creation and economic growth in the UK. Companies of all sizes will be dismayed that Strasbourg is once again intervening in a way that stops EU member-states from running their own labour markets.

"The ECJ ruling also underscores the importance of securing the UK opt-out from elements of the Working Time Directive."
