Retamero v TNT Express Worldwide Spain S.L. and other companies

European Union – Employment. On a reference concerning art 3(d) and (e) of Directive (EC) 2002/15, which dealt with the organisation of the working time of persons performing mobile road activities, the Court of Justice of the European Union decided that the questions referred for a preliminary ruling were inadmissible on the basis that the disputes at issue in the main proceedings, which pertained to an action challenging a dismissal, did not relate to a question about the organisation of working time, but to whether the person concerned should be classified as a 'mobile worker' for the purposes of legislation on dismissals. Accordingly, such a dispute did not come within the scope of that directive and the concepts in art 3(d) and (e) could not apply to that dispute.
