GCJ case - SJSO 2892/2019
A group of Deliveroo riders in Valencia, Spain sued Deliveroo for misclassifying them as self-employed workers. On 10 June 2019, the Valencia court ruled that Deliveroo wrongly hired 97 riders as self-employed contractors instead of as regular workers, which cost less for the firm. The court agreed that the riders were in fact employees, arguing that they communicated with Deliveroo via a mobile app and had to follow the company's orders. The Valencia court ruling is not final as the company could appeal the ruling.
