Can my husband be made to work more than 48 hours car transported driver without extra pay
Nothing his company want him to sign a new contract after 10 years saying he must work extra hours as required with extra pay
Thank you for your inquire.
You can find the social legislation relating to road transport in the EU Regulation 561/2006.
According to article 6 of this Regulation the The daily driving time shall not exceed nine hours. The longest extention that can be required to a driver is of 10 hours but not more than twice during the week.
As a consequence, what your husband is being required is against the fundamentals rules set up the EU law for the protection of driver's rights.

My husband started work at 7am this morning he was forced to take another delivery out at 4pm and did not get home until 8.30 this evening. He does not get a penny extra pay for this . has his company broke the law today
Yes the company is really demanding something which is against the Regulation and I think your husband can also ask for tort, not just for an extra payment.
I would suggest you to contact a local lawyer who can best take care of your situation and advice you on which opportunities you have to claim for your rights.
