Since 1 januari 2017 the Dutch Civil Code has been expanded with an business chain responsibility for fair payment of salary towards employees. In this new law clients of dishonest transport companies are responsible for fair payment of wages as well. The law is applicable for:
• Agreements to transport goods by road
• Agreements to do transport of goods by road (also called an expedition agreement).
An employee is allowed to recover the liabilty of overdue wages upon the clients of dishonest transport companies. These clients are then liable for payment of the overdue wages.

• Payment of the full minimum wage
• Payments of wages by bank transfer
• Clear wage slips
