• Glovo avoids the 'Rider Law' and maintains eight out of 10 distributors as self-employed

The imposition of

illegal conditions on workers

"through their hiring under

formulas unrelated to the employment contract"

, as well as their maintenance "against a requirement or administrative sanction", will be punished with

imprisonment from six months to six years

labor fraud

in accordance with the Law on infractions and sanctions of the social order, which establishes

fines of between 3,000 and 10,000 euros.
