Second ruling of the Supreme Court on the employment of the ‘riders’. The high court has rejected the appeal filed by Deliveroo against the judgment of the Superior Court of Justice (TSJ) of Madrid that considered false self-employed about 500 distributors of the multinational in Madrid. “The Supreme Court does not appreciate an interest in cassation,” celebrated the Ronda Collective law firm, which defends messengers. The Supreme Court rejects Deliveroo’s claims in its order, considering that it has already ruled on this issue in its famous first sentence on riders, in which it considered that a former Glovo messenger was a false self-employed person.
There is already a ruling by the Supreme Court on Glovo: the ‘riders’ are workers and the company “is not a mere intermediary”
The order, to which elDiario.es has had access, establishes that “the lack of cassational content is clear in accordance with what is stated in this resolution as this Fourth Chamber has ruled on the matter.” The Supreme Court refers to its sentence of September 25, which analyzed for the first time the delivery work on digital platforms and concluded that the plaintiff, a former Glovo delivery person, was a false self-employed person.
