Leigh Day is currently investigating the potential of bringing a claim relating to more DSPs.

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.

Our legal team 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. 

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.

We are not aware of any Amazon delivery drivers who have been dismissed for bringing a claim.

Leigh Day 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.

Leigh Day 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.

Leigh Day, however, are unable 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, Leigh Day 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.

Employment legal claims must go through a number of stages to reach a conclusion. Our legal team estimate that it could take 1 – 3 years from the start of the claim to get a decision on the employment status of drivers.

f 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.

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 your appointed law firm, Leigh Day, as soon as possible to let them know all of the DSPs you have delivered for, and when you last delivered for each one.

If you do not tell Leigh Day about the other DSPs you have driven for, they will not be able to consider all your potential claims.
