Registration of Amazon Flex deliverers
In 2019, the Spanish trade union (Unión General de Trabajadores, UGT) filed a complaint with the Madrid labour inspectorate against the Amazon Flex platform, considering that it commits fraud around the figure of the bogus self-employed, since the workers use their own cars.
In October 2020, the labour inspectorate has officially registered 4,066 Amazon Flex delivery workers who worked as self-employed workers in the general Social Security regime. The ruling requires Amazon to pay over €6 million in unpaid social security contributions.
