Today the Amsterdam court issued verdicts in two lawsuits against Deliveroo by the labor union FNV. In both lawsuits the judge found the position of the FNV to be correct. The union filed suit against Deliveroo because the meal delivery business implemented a forced freelance model. The Deliveroo meal deliverers were all, beginning in 2018, forced to work as freelancers if they wanted to continue working for Deliveroo. “The meal deliverers are not entrepreneurs,” says union official Willem Dijkhuizen from FNV Transport and Logistics. “And if they are not entrepreneurs, they must be employees.”
