Widow sues DPD after husband died after being fined for hospital visit
The widow of a DPD driver is seeking compensation from the delivery company after her husband collapsed after missing hospital appointments because he feared the company's practice of charging drivers £150 for missing work. Ruth Lane has lodged a claim at the employment tribunal in Bristol which alleges that her husband, who died suddenly in January 2018 from diabetes, was ill and vomiting blood but attended work due to his fear of being fined for failing to attend work without permission.https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/sep/13/widow-sues-dpd-over-courier-husbands-death
