Amazon drivers look to sue for compensation over rights
A law firm is seeking to launch a group action against Amazon over employee rights for delivery drivers. Drivers making deliveries on behalf of Amazon for its "Delivery Service Partners" are not entitled to National Minimum Wage or an employment contract, Leigh Day said. Leigh Day, which brought, and won, a landmark case on behalf of Uber drivers for workers' rights in February, claims at least three thousand drivers could potentially be owed more than a hundred million pounds in compensation. Kate Robinson, a Leigh Day employment solicitor, said: "It appears that Amazon is short-changing drivers making deliveries on their behalf."This is disgraceful behaviour from a company that makes billions of pounds a year. "Drivers delivering for Amazon have to work set shifts and book time off, yet Amazon claim they are self-employed."
