    Hi everyone,
    I have just started my first shift at Deliveroo, a biker told me that the system of wage has changed since a few months, and may be the new bikers will not take adavantage of that work than before..

    So, if you have some significant advice or information about the bikers wage I will be very grateful!!

    I hope my words and my thought were clear.
    Thank you 😅

    As I understand it, Deliveroo bikers used to get a wage somewhere above the minimum (£7.25 per hour). They then introduced a system based on the number of deliveries (something like £3.50 per delivery?) which meant that the delivery bikers could end up earning below the minimum wage. There was a recent court judgment ordering them to pay minimum wage to their workers but apparently they are not applying it and they are continuing on the old per-delivery system.

    It is highly likely that you would be classed as a 'worker' (not self-employed as your contract likely says) and thus you are not only entitled to £7.25 per hour (and this includes time spent waiting according to a recent tribunal judgment) but you are also entitled to paid holidays (that is, you accumulate 28 days of paid holiday days for each year worked at full-time equivalent).

    Keep your payslips and records of the work you did, so when you leave Deliveroo if they didn't pay you your minimum wage and paid holiday entitlements, you can bring a wages owed claim against them in the tribunal (it can actually add up to quite a lot)

    So, if you have some significant advice or information about the bikers wage I will be very grateful!!
    Do you have a copy of your contract? It's unlikely it will say "employment contract", it will probably claim you are a self-employed contractor. But they will have provided you a contract of some sort; if you PM me I'll be happy to take a look (I'm an employment law adviser at a law centre)

    Edit: I just realised how old this thread is (I see that cammybob12 bumped it up after six months dormant). But for the OP, if Deliveroo hasn't paid you your due (minimum wage and your accrued holiday pay) then you can bring a claim against them if you so wish
