Bolt Driver Claims

If you've Driven for Bolt in the in the past 10 weeks, you could be owed thousands in compensation.

Why You Could Claim £1000s

Currently, Bolt drivers work under contracts which seek to classify them as self-employed independent contractors. However, our partner law firm argues that the reality of the way in which drivers work means that they should be classified as workers, not self-employed contractors.

As workers, you would gain access to essential rights and protections, including holiday pay and the National Minimum Wage. If the claim is successful, you could also claim compensation for backdated holiday pay and shortfalls to the National Minimum Wage.

What You'll Be Compensated For

Many Bolt drivers are categorised as independent contractors, which means they often lack essential benefits and protections that workers enjoy, something a successful claim will give you access to.

Some of these include:

Unlawful Deductions

Workers have legal protection against unlawful deductions from their wages. You shouldn't experienced unauthorised deductions that have affected your earnings, you may be eligible to join the claim.

National Minimum Wage

Workers are entitled to receive at least the National Minimum Wage for the work they perform. If you believe you haven't been adequately compensated for your services, you may have a valid claim.

Whistleblower Protection

The right to raise concerns, such as health and safety issues, without fear of retaliation or punishment. If you have faced consequences for speaking out about work-related concerns, you may have grounds for a claim.

Employment Contract

A clear employment contract that outlines the terms and conditions of their work. If you haven't been provided with a formal employment contract, you may be entitled to claim.
