MADRID, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Spain will begin working on legislation to enshrine the rights of delivery cyclists as employees rather than freelance workers, Labour Minister Yolanda Diaz said on Tuesday.
“A delivery boy on a bicycle is not an entrepreneur, he is a worker,” she told reporters after the weekly cabinet meeting.
Spain’s Supreme Court ruled last week that riders for Barcelona-based food delivery app Glovo were actually employees, not freelancers. (Reporting by Emma Pinedo; Writing by Nathan Allen; Editing by Inti Landauro)
