Leigh Day is currently investigating the potential of bringing a claim relating to more DSPs.
Please check the website for any updates and register your details on the sign-up page for us to contact you with any future developments on the claims.
Please let us know if you drive (or have driven in the last 10 weeks) for Amazon via a different DSP – you can do this by registering your details on the website. When we have this information about other DSPs, we are able to investigate bringing claims against them.
If you have delivered for Amazon via more than one DSP in the last 10 weeks, then once you have signed up to join the claim please contact us as soon as possible to let us know all of the DSPs you have delivered for, and when you last delivered for each one.
Alternatively, you can sign up again by completing the online form for each DSP you have worked for in the last 10 weeks. If you do not tell us about the other DSPs you have driven for, we will not be able to consider all your potential claims.
We estimate that the average Amazon delivery driver is entitled to around £10,500 in compensation after our fees. This is for:
- Back pay for unpaid holiday
- Those who received less than the National Minimum Wage
- The failure to provide you with an employment contract.
We will calculate your compensation using documents such as:
- Pay slips
- Tax returns/accounts
- Bank statements
If you are successful, we will deduct 25% plus VAT from your compensation for our legal fees. Please see our Amazon drivers’ claim page for more information on how the claim is funded.
If you lose, you should not have to pay any legal fees for Amazon or the DSP.
However, in exceptional circumstances, you may be subjected to fees. This includes if you behave in an abusive, disruptive or otherwise unreasonable manner or ignore an order of the Tribunal.
No, you do not need to provide any documents to find out if you are eligible and to join the claim.
Once you join the claim, we will contact you with further information. This includes any documents that may assist us in calculating the compensation you could be owed.
Yes, you can still join the claim if you delivered for Amazon via a DSP in the last 10 weeks.
If you have not driven for a DSP in the last 10 weeks, please register your details on the sign-up page. This could be worthwhile, as you may be able to join the claim in the future.
We are not aware of any Amazon delivery drivers who have been dismissed for bringing a claim.
We cannot guarantee how Amazon or the DSP will respond to the claim. However, if you were dismissed in response to joining the claim, you could potentially bring an additional claim for unfair dismissal.
We believe there is a good case for arguing that any such action would be unlawful (although, as with all litigation, there is no guarantee that a Tribunal will agree).
If your claim is successful, you will receive compensation for your losses arising from the dismissal.
If the Employment Tribunal finds drivers bringing a claim should be classified as employees, it is possible that HMRC will decide the DSP or Amazon should have deducted income tax and National Insurance contributions from every driver’s previous earnings via PAYE.
If HMRC decides this, there’s a possibility the tax that should have been deducted from your salary is more than the tax you paid under self-assessment. If that is the case, and HMRC decide to take action, we believe it’s more likely that HMRC will require the DSP or Amazon (rather than individual drivers) to pay any shortfall in tax.
The risk that HMRC will ask you and every other driver to pay any shortfall in tax is low. Even if HMRC does ask you to pay the difference between your tax payable on a self-employment basis and PAYE, the difference between the two is likely to be relatively small.
We are not, however, able to provide more specific advice on your individual circumstances with respect to tax. Instead, if you have any concerns about the position relating to tax, we recommend that you seek advice from an accountant or tax adviser.
At this time, we are only asking drivers who drive for / have driven for the DSPs listed in the last 10 weeks to join the claim. Should this change, we will update the website.
If you join the Amazon drivers’ claim and terminate your employment with Amazon, you should update our team via email (email@example.com) letting us know your last date of employment. Leaving Amazon will not affect your ability to continue with the claim.
If you start working for a different DSP in the future, you will need to sign up to join the claim again to bring a claim against that DSP as well.
Once you have started at the new DSP, please use our online form to check your eligibility and sign up for the claim against the new DSP if you are able to do so.
