Court judgement on employment status (Glovo)
In November 2020, the Court of Palermo ruled that the Spanish delivery platform Glovo had to classify its couriers as full-time employees. A courier had taken the case to court with the help of a local branch of the Italian General Confederation of Labour (CGIL) to denounce Glovo for deactivating his account. As a result, Glovo was urged to pay the courier per hour instead of on a per-delivery-basis.
