Unless maybe they are not at fault in any way and it was all the fault of the driver. Maybe the driver was not telling them about his working during the day (because none of the reports said he was "employed" or "on overtime").
How much Nelson's Eye are you willing to use to exhonerate Lidl? You can maybe excuse them for not bothering to check Fry's originally but continuing to use them on the basis that Fry's was not aware also?
From the press reports:
The court heard Palmer worked long hours driving in the evenings and then carrying out mechanical work for his employer, Fry's Logistics Ltd from Launceston, Cornwall, during the day.

Other reports say that mechanical work was carried out in Fry's yard.
You still think Fry's didn't know?
And what about their allowing him to continue to drive after being arrested for causing death by dangerous driving so he could have another accident and injure a lorry driver two weeks later? Surely with his arrest they must have known enough to suspend him from driving? But they turned a blind eye instead.
