Arret 9 Novembre 2017 N. 16/12875

On 9 November 2017, the court of appeal in Paris rejected the case brought by Mr. Y Z. against Deliveroo France, and held that Mr. Y.Z. was not bound to Deliveroo by an employment contract. The official platform outfit is not a sufficient element to characterise the existence of a link of subordination. Finally, the courier was not subject to any exclusivity or non-competition clause and therefore could work for other similar service providers.
