    Bowden and others v Tuffnells Parcels Express Ltd [2000] IRLR 560 EAT (0 other reports)

In Bowden and others v Tuffnells Parcels Express Ltd 6.4.00 EAT 622/99, the EAT refers to the European Court of Justice, for a preliminary ruling, the question of whether or not all workers employed in the road transport sector of activity are necessarily excluded from the scope of the EC Working Time Directive. If not, the EAT asks what test should be applied to determine which of those workers are so excluded and which are not.
