Company claims they did nothing wrong but still changed their practices.

Why change something if it was not wrong?

Tragic case, but I wonder if the driver had failed to disclose how seriously ill he was? What type of licence do you need to drive these vans? Suspect if he'd been a truck driver he'd have been off the road ages ago. Think the authorities will be hyper-sensitive to things like this after the truck driver in Glasgow who failed to disclose a previous loss of consciousness ended up killing six people.

And how long have these drivers been self-employed? I thought that had been the arrangements for years, or is this a new 'gig economy' thing?

This company should be stripped of its Queens award for innovation or was it given for how to rip off employees.

the definition of business innovation is if you come up with a new way to cut costs especially wage bills
