Description

In February 2021, the Amsterdam Court of Appeal ruled that Deliveroo workers are employees and that they are therefore entitled to paid holiday leave and pension as well as hourly pay according to the haulage-sector collective labour agreement (CLA). The riders filing the lawsuit were supported by the trade union federation FNV (Federatie Nederlands Vakbeweging), which claimed the workers were subject to bogus self-employment. Deliveroo has been appealing the judgment.
