Deliveroo responds to the publication of the Matthew Taylor review into modern employment practices
Responding to the publication of the Matthew Taylor review into modern employment practices, a Deliveroo spokesperson said:
'Matthew Taylor's report rightly highlights both the benefits and popularity of flexible work in the on-demand economy.
'Employment law is outdated and this is a great opportunity to make it fit for the 21st Century. The Government needs to ensure that any new measures are pro growth so that companies can continue to expand and create well paid opportunities for people in the UK. The Government should be under no illusions that any moves to restrict flexibility could undermine the very thing that attracts people to work in this sector.
'As we have made clear, we want to continue offering riders the flexible work they want whilst also providing benefits. We would welcome the opportunity to work with the Government so we can end this trade off between flexibility and security.'
