Legal Decisions

Spanish Gig Workers Ruling

Spanish Government Buildings

On May 2021, the Spanish government ruled that workers for food delivery platforms and other companies should be classed as employees. The new law came into force on August 12th.

Addison Lee

In April, The UK Court of Appeal ruled that Addison Lee will not be able to fight the decision by the Employment Tribunal that drivers for the taxi and courier firm are entitled to workers’ rights.


On 27 November 2020, the High Court of Justice in Spain ruled that riders of Glovo are employees and not self-employed. The Spanish Court changed its previous criteria after ruling in September 2019 that Glovo Riders were self-employed. It has again raised the issue of the ambiguous employment status of platform workers.

Uber UK

Uber has been dealt a blow by the UK Supreme court. 5 Uber workers have won the right to be treated as workers as opposed to self-employed. This decision is likely to set a precedent.

In the News

The open talent economy is constantly changing. So to help you keep up to date, we have created this section. Here we will compile the latest news that is changing the gig economy.

How are you rewarding your best freelancers?

career trends

The freelance revolution owes its explosive growth to a trifecta of trends: first, the rise of freelancing as an attractive alternative career for a growing range of professions; second, increasingly available and affordable tech that allowed professionals to live in one location and deliver work to another, virtually; and third, the acceptance of remote work resulting from the pandemic Covid-19.

Legal challenges to the Gig Economy

The gig economy has had some large knocks over the last year. Companies such as UBER, Deliveroo and Addison Lee have all recently lost superior court cases instigated by workers. All three organisations have been accused of misclassifying their workers as self-employed.
