Gophr Courier Claim

If you've worked for Gophr in the past 10 weeks, you could be eligible to claim thousands in compensation.

Why Gophr Couriers Could Be Entitled to Thousands

The Gophr worker status claim aims to demonstrate to the Employment Tribunal that Gophr couriers should be classified as workers, rather than independent contractors. Gophr exercises significant control over the couriers’ work and integrates them into their business in several ways, including:

  • Recruiting the couriers and assigning them an ID number.
  • Requiring pick up and delivery of items within specified time slots.
  • Fixing the job rate that couriers will receive.
  • Evaluating couriers’ performance through key performance indicators.
  • Imposing penalties on couriers for slow job performance.

These factors are crucial in determining the employment status of the couriers and whether they should be entitled to workers’ rights and protections.

The Claim

Leigh Day’s team of experienced employment solicitors is representing Gophr couriers in bringing a claim before the Employment Tribunal. If the Tribunal ruling is favourable, the couriers will be granted a declaration confirming their worker status, making them eligible for holiday pay and the national minimum wage.

Furthermore, Gophr will be ordered to provide compensation in the form of back pay to its couriers.

This claim aims to establish your worker status solely for the purpose of securing your employment rights, and it does not challenge your tax classification. You may retain your self-employed tax status while being recognised as a worker for employment rights.

If you work as a Gophr courier, our partner law firm believes that you are an employee and have the right to seek reimbursement for the following:

Unpaid Holiday

Unpaid holiday pay for the entire duration of your employment with Gophr.

Paid Annual Leave

Entitlement to 28 days of paid annual leave if you are currently employed by Gophr.

Shortfalls in Your Wage

Any shortfall between the pay you have received and the National Minimum Wage.

National Minimum Wage

The right to receive at least the National Minimum Wage if you are still working for Gophr.

Worried About Backlash?

As a worker, you are legally protected against any adverse actions from Gophr in response to your claim for these rights. Should Gophr attempt to alter or remove your working conditions due to your worker status claim, you may be entitled to additional compensation.
