Deliverer not an employee

‘Deliveroo bicycle courier Sytse Ferwanda (20) is an independent entrepreneur and not an employee’ was the judgement of the court in Amsterdam. The contract that was concluded between a deliverer and Deliveroo does not count as an employment contract – and thus is the deliverer not an employee at the delivery company. According to the judge it is clear that the contract was intended as a self-employment contract. Also based on the method of working it is clear that there is no paid employment in this case.
