FWC Rules Gig Worker an Employee
Breaking News: Delivery driver Diego Franco has won his case for unfair dismissal against Deliveroo.
The *big* news is that Mr Franco was found to be an Employee, despite Deliveroo saying he was an Independent Contractor. A big reason why was because the company's algorithms and platform dictated which jobs he was given and when, effectively controlling his behaviour.
Sound familiar? It should because it is the exact same way ALL the major Rideshare Platforms control drivers.
