The legal battle between Glovo and the Government continues to generate new episodes, the last with a bittersweet victory for the delivery company.


National Court

has dismissed an appeal from the General Treasury of Social Security in which the public entity demanded that the


pay it two payments amounting to

almost 64 million euros

due to the company's economic situation.

The payments correspond to the settlement of a

Labor Inspection

report in which 24.1 million euros are claimed and a

penalty of more than 39 million

euros for concurrent violations, according to the ruling to which


has had access .

In this way, the payment of this sanction will be suspended until the rulings on the


' labor model are final, a path that, predictably, will end in the Supreme Court.

Among the reasons that have led the court to apply the precautionary measures, the losses that the company has been carrying are noted, as well as the fall in the shares of its parent company

"Spanish financial entities have reduced or eliminated the credit offered to the company," states the ruling, which is based on an expert opinion provided by


to the case.

Precisely, the Social Security lawyers charged that this "partial evidence" had been taken into account, which they called a "partial and interested report."

Likewise, they also point out that the suspension harms the company's workers who

will see how the establishment of a new employment situation is delayed

and the delay in their contributions will be compensated, always according to the Labor thesis.
