News of the 19/02/2019

The court in Cottbus (Brandenburg) has just confirmed that drivers doing the same job must have the same salary in Germany.

Indeed, Polish carriers filed a complaint in this court because they refused to pay their drivers at the German minimum wage, or € 9.19 gross per hour. They have lost their claim and therefore have to pay.

Thus, a driver traveling to France and crossing Germany must be paid according to the German minimum for these hours worked.
