Ruling 7/5/2018 n. 778

On 7 April 2018, the Employment Tribunal of Turin rejected a claim from six riders of the food delivery platform Foodora who asked to be reclassified as employees. the riders argued that they had been disconnected from the platform as a form of retaliation of the company against their decision to go on strike. The judge denied employee status based on the alleged freedom of workers to decide when to work and to disregard previously agreed shifts.
