The case follows a number of claims brought by workers in the "gig" economy demanding rights such as holiday pay, the minimum wage and pensions contributions.
Deliveroo riders have been ruled self-employed by labour law body the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC). But it is seen as a test case for riders across the United Kingdom, including those working for other firms similar to Deliveroo.
The company also removed performance monitoring and a requirement for riders to wear its branded clothing, both factors seen as central to differentiating between workers, who are service providers closely controlled by an employer, and self-employed contractors.
Drivers at Uber won a victory a week ago when the company lost an appeal at the Employment Appeal Tribunal against an earlier decision to grant them workers' rights.
Festival Disney se tiendra à Tunis prochainement
La Master Class sur le thème: " De Mickey à Coco: 90 ans d'innovations technologiques au service de l'art de l'animation ". Le 1er Festival Disney organisé en Tunisie se tiendra du 24 au 26 novembre 2017, dans 6 salles de cinéma du Grand-Tunis.
The committee added: "Since we have found that the riders are not workers, we can not accept the Union's claim for recognition and for rights to negotiate on pay, hours and holidays with Deliveroo".
He said the company wanted employment law to be changed so Deliveroo could offer injury pay and sick pay while maintaining flexibility. Being unable to send someone else to do your work is a key definition of a worker, an employment classification that carries the right to the national minimum wage, union recognition and holiday pay.
Deliveroo had argued that if riders were classed as workers, they would lose their current flexibility, which allows them to pick up orders as they wish, and be paid by the delivery, rather than working in shifts.
IWGB General Secretary Dr Jason Moyer-Lee said: "It seems that after a series of defeats, finally a so-called gig economy company has found a way to game the system". "By working together we will protect the flexibility you value and increase the security you deserve".
