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.

If you have driven for Amazon via a Delivery Service Partner (DSP) in the last 10 weeks, you may be eligible to join the claim.

We act on behalf of Amazon delivery drivers claiming they should be treated as employees, not self-employed contractors.

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 drivers 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.

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 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.

Why choose Leigh Day?

Experienced claimant lawyers

At Leigh Day, we don’t act for big corporations – we act for individuals. Our employment and discrimination lawyers have plenty of experience bringing group claims against major corporations, including Uber and ASDA. In these claims, we acted for groups of clients numbering from 15 to 50,000 in size.

Specialist legal teams

The experience we have built up over more than 30 years of holding corporations to account is unrivalled. This means you can rest assured our expert team knows the best way to represent you and your group claim.

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.

Uber Driver

If you currently drive or recently drove for Amazon in the last 10 weeks via a Delivery Service Partner (DSP), you may be eligible to join the claim.

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.

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 (amazonclaims@leighday.co.uk) 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.
