Amazon drivers' claim
Leigh Day is acting for Amazon delivery drivers who may be entitled to an average of £10,500 compensation for every year they've driven for Amazon.

Can I join the claim if I no longer deliver for Amazon via a DSP?
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.
How do I join the claim?
It’s simple to sign-up and join hundreds of your fellow delivery drives who are taking action for the employee rights you deserve.
Watch our short video which shows how the sign-up process works.
If I win my Amazon claim, how will I be compensated?
We estimate that the average Amazon delivery driver is entitled to around £10,500 in compensation. 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.
Your claim will be on a “no win, no fee” agreement. Operating on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis for our clients means no Amazon driver is left worrying about how they’ll pay for a claim. You pay nothing upfront.
When your compensation comes through, you’ll know in advance exactly how much we need to deduct (25 per cent plus VAT), and the rest is yours to keep.

Step by step guide to the Amazon claim
Following calls from Amazon Drivers seeking to improve their rights, Leigh Day launched a claim for drivers to gain better employee rights such as holiday pay, the national minimum wage, and an employment contract. The claim will be against Amazon and their DSPs.
We understand that you may have some questions about the process.
To make the whole process easier, we have set up a dedicated area for Amazon drivers to find out more information about the claim and sign-up. We’ve also created some helpful resources to break down the key points to understand the Amazon drivers’ claims:
- You can check out our FAQs page for answers to the most common questions about the claim; a great place to get answers quickly.
- We do not act for big corporations; we act for individuals. Want to know who we are? Read our About Us
Anyone who is currently driving or has driven for Amazon in England, Scotland or Wales within the last 10 weeks is eligible to join the claim.
To start your claim, you simply need to:
- Provide basic personal and eligibility details; and
- Agree to the terms and conditions.
You can do so via our secure online form or, you can speak to one of our friendly team members by phone.
How much will it cost to sign-up?
The claim is ‘no win, no fee’ meaning that you pay nothing upfront or if your claim is unsuccessful as long as you abide by the terms and conditions. If your claim succeeds, our fee will be a percentage of your compensation, 25% (plus VAT).
After we have assessed your eligibility and you have agreed to our ‘no win no fee’ agreement, you will be part of the claim; it is that simple!
Once you agree to our terms you are part of the claim, that’s when we (Leigh Day) get to work.
- You will receive a confirmation email from us letting you know that we have received your sign-up and confirming the next step steps of the claim
- We will notify ACAS of your intention to start proceedings and submit your claim to the Employment Tribunal.
- Once your claim has been submitted to ACAS, you will periodically throughout the duration of the claim receive communications from Leigh Day to ensure that you are informed every step of the way, this includes but is not limited to:
- requests further information to support your claim,
- regular claim updates,
- news on any major developments affecting your claims.
Important to note: An employment claim has several stages to work through so it can take a long time, years in many cases, to conclude. Where possible, we will be claiming for losses incurred during the entire time that you have driven for Amazon. The amount of compensation owed to you will therefore continue to increase as the claim progresses, as long as you are still a driver for Amazon. We will also be claiming for compensation where Amazon has paid you less than the national minimum wage.
If your claim brought by us is successful you will receive a sum of compensation, find out more about this in our FAQs section. From that, you’ll need to pay the agreed fee of 25% (plus VAT) for the services we have provided.
If your claim brought by us is unsuccessful, you will not need to pay anything under the terms of our ‘no win no fee’ agreement.
This removes any financial risks and does not leave you out of pocket!
Employment law specialists
Leigh Day is a leading employment and discrimination law firm. We have won worker's rights for Uber drivers', compensation for Deliveroo riders and are currently acting for Addison Lee drivers, Stuart couriers and BCA drivers.
We do not act for big corporations; we act for individuals. Our aim is to ensure that Amazon drivers receive the employee right they deserve. That is why we are encouraging all Amazon drivers to join the claim and help fight for basic worker protections and benefits – such as receiving holiday pay and the National Minimum Wage.
Employee rights for Amazon drivers
Most drivers who deliver products for Amazon via DSPs are listed as independent contractors. This means you have no guarantee of work, and you may have to pay to hire a van from a courier.
Employees have certain legal protections and benefits. This includes the right to:
- A contract setting out the terms of your employment
- Receive the National Minimum Wage
- Protection from unlawful deductions from wages
- Raise concerns, such as health and safety, without the fear of being punished.
That’s why we’re supporting Amazon drivers bringing claims to ensure they can access the same benefits and protections offered to employees.

Successful track record
We are leading employment and discrimination lawyers, and are top-ranked by Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners.
If you’re a driver who delivers products for Amazon via Delivery Service Partners (DSPs), you may have been classed as a self-employed contractor. This means you’re not entitled to receive paid holiday or the National Minimum Wage.
However, as employment law specialists, we believe the way drivers work in practice – including how drivers are controlled when working – should mean they’re classified as employees.
Our leading employment and discrimination lawyers believe now is the time to challenge this unfair treatment and ensure drivers receive the rights they deserve. That’s why we’re asking Amazon drivers to join the claim and take legal action against Amazon and its delivery network. If successful, Amazon delivery drivers across the UK may be entitled to over £10,500 in compensation.
You may be eligible to join the claim if you:
✅ Currently drive or recently drove for Amazon in the last 10 weeks via a Delivery Service Partner (DSP).
✅ Deliver in England, Scotland, or Wales.
We believe drivers should receive the maximum pay they missed out on as self-contractors. That’s why we’re claiming holiday pay for the entire time you worked for Amazon, not just two years’ back pay.
Joining the claim is straightforward and only takes a few minutes. You don’t need to provide any documents like tax returns to find out if you can join the claim.
Based on the information we have so far, we think the average driver may be entitled to around £10,500 in compensation, if the claim is successful. The total amount you could secure will be calculated based on your pay slips, tax returns/accounts, bank statements and receipts.
We are currently claiming compensation for:
- Back pay for missed holiday pay
- Drivers who received less than the National Minimum Wage
- The failure to provide drivers with an employment contract.
However, this compensation will only be available to drivers who join the claim.
Our sign up process is as straightforward and transparent as possible. It only takes a few minutes to find out if you are eligible to join the Amazon claim process or not.
We don't require you to provide any additional documents, such as tax returns, to check your eligibility either. The full terms for joining the claim are set out in our Damages Based Agreement – which you can review after checking your eligibility.
