The National Road Transport Association has today released an urgent request in relation to delaying the implementation of Contractor Driver Minimum Payments.
On Tuesday 15 March there was a hearing before the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal (RSRT) and the RSRT has sought urgent submissions/statements about whether the Contractor Driver Minimum Payments Road Safety Remuneration Order 2016 should be delayed so that instead of commencing on 4 April 2016, it commences on 1 January 2017.
NatRoad has requested that any owner-drivers or hirers wishing to provide a statement to the RSRT, use this template (your browser should download a word file).
Your statement has to be signed, dated, scanned and sent urgently by email to email@example.com before 10am on Monday 21 March 2016.
This will be the last opportunity to provide your feedback to the RSRT regarding the Contractor Driver Minimum Payments order.
