Delivery app Glovo was fined almost €57m on Tuesday after Spain’s Labour Inspectorate found over 7,800 couriers in Madrid had been misclassified as self-employed workers; immigrants without valid work permits were also found to be working via the platform.

Local news reports suggest the Barcelona-based on-demand delivery firm, which is owned by the German company Delivery Hero, was ordered to pay €32.9m for breaching labour laws; €19m in unpaid social security contributions; and €5.2m for visa violations. The company says it is appealing the sanctions.
