According to Cadena SER, Glovo will have to pay a new fine from the Ministry of Labor: 56.7 million euros per employee who is falsely self-employed and immigrants without permission to work.
Glovo has been fined 32.9 million euros for having 7,022 delivery people working as self-employed flasos. In addition, he will have to pay 19 million euros more in fees that have not been paid by them to Social Security.
The second of the penalties is related to immigrants who do not have a valid work permit. These deliver the goods because to the fact that many delivery men cross their license with the immigrants. So far they have detected that there are 813 immigrants working for Glovo without the necessary work permit to do so. He will have to pay 5.2 million euros.
Glovo's fine and sanctions in Madrid have matched those imposed by the Labor Inspectorate in Barcelona and Valencia last September. In total, he will be subjected to more than 125 million penalties for using false self-employed delivery men.
Because the inspection finds that all of the Glovo distributors are false self-employed, the company is also required to pay the Social Security bills it would have paid earlier if the distributors had been hired as Glovo workers.
Glovo's economic situation is still deteriorating, with its current owner, the German Delivery Hero, refusing to change her business model of hiring all the delivery employees who work for her.
Glovo claims to have modified its model, but their employees do not work, according to the Labor Inspectorate.
