Laura Pidcock responds to Employment Tribunal ruling on Hermes

Laura Pidcock MP, Shadow Minister for Labour, responding to today’s Employment Tribunal ruling on Hermes couriers, said:

“Today’s judgement is fantastic news for workers and potentially thousands of Hermes couriers.

“Businesses that seek to exploit workers by denying the national living wage and holiday pay, under the pretences of the so-called ‘gig economy’ must be held to account for their shameful actions. Exploitative business models that put pressure on employees by denying workers their basic rights are totally unjust.

“The next Labour government will put an end to bogus self-employment and guarantee all workers their full rights from day one.”
