Deliveroo riders are not in an employment relationship under European human rights law, the UK Court of Appeal has unanimously held, upholding an earlier High Court ruling that the food couriers are not “workers” for the purposes of gaining collective bargaining rights.

In 2017, the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) declined to accept an application from the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB) for the collective bargaining rights of Deliveroo riders, instead finding that the couriers are self-employed.
